High School Equivalency preparation classes prepare you for the high school equivalency tests. Many support programs are available to help you along the way.

English as a Second Language (ESL) classes strengthen English reading, writing, and listening skills for employment, college, and student success.

The Literacy Program has one purpose: to improve the reading, math or English language skills for adults whose literacy levels are below the 9th grade.
