About Adult Education

Important Notice

At this time, our thoughts are with those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. and around the globe.  As we continue to monitor its local impact, the health and safety of our staff and students remains our top priority.  We are continuing to serve the educational needs of our community by moving our classes online.  Additionally, our staff is working remotely (from home) to provide you with the same great service and attention that you'd normally receive in our offices.  We know how great the impact of earning a high school diploma or improving English language skills can be to a family.  So, we're here and ready to support our new and returning students. 

Update: Fall classes for GED ® Prep and ESOL will be offered online and in-person. All classes start August 24th.  Interested students should contact the Adult Education at (850) 201-8760 or our Career Pathways Specialist at (850) 201-8043 for additional information regarding enrollment.


Interested students can contact the Adult Education department at (850) 201-8760 or the Career Pathways Specialist at (850) 201-8043 for additional information regarding enrollment.
