Adult Education Services: We offer services for adults looking to complete their high school education by earning a diploma from the state of Kansas by passing the GED. We also help them improve math, reading or writing skills so they can transition to better employment and/or college. We have 5 sites, all located on community college campuses in Southeast Kansas. Many of our students go on to earn degrees in fields like health care, welding and construction technologies.

1)b) Adults who have been in the workforce for awhile and need to have a diploma to move up or keep their current job (aged 26 - 49)
