Adult education offers individuals 18 and older a chance to earn their HSE /GED. We also provide ABE (adult basic education) classes for individuals that are not quite ready to take their GED tests without some math and writing practice and review. Classes are offered 4 days a week and free transportation is available.  We are also offering additional events for our adult participants to suggest some direction after they earn their HSE/GED. We have Kirtland Community College, Baker College, Armed Forces, Mid Michigan Community College, and MI Works currently scheduled to come in and share information on what to do after you earn your HSE/GED.  Weekly attendance is required. Contact our program at 422-6161 for any additional information.

*Once you earn your HSE/GED, you are no longer eligible to receive a high school diploma
