Adult Education

 

Welcome to the Adult Education Program!

AVANCE provides Adult Education programs with a continuum of services that prepare students to access higher education.

ABE/GED - The Adult Basic Education program provides instruction in mathematics, reading, and writing. The GED academic program prepares students to succeed in obtaining their GED Certificate (High School Equivalency).

ESL (English as Second Language) AVANCE offers classes at basic and intermediate levels for adults who wish to improve their ability to speak, read, or write the English language.

GED on the Move - To create a college-bound culture within our families, AVANCE offers GED On the Move, a program that prepares our GED students to transition into viable post-secondary career options, including college credit enrollment, child development certificate training, and job skills training. Through this program, we also offer assistance with financial aid applications, C-PALS mentorship, parent coaching academy, college field trips, online labs, tutoring, and an AVANCE scholarship.

General Office Assistant Certificate (GOA)
This three-month program prepares students to become administrative assistants by learning typing skills, internet usage and Microsoft Office. They also learn telephone etiquette, customer service and professional communication skills.

We offer 2 semesters per year:

First semester: September-December
Second semester: January- May
