Adult Education Literacy Programs

Would you like to become more successful both personally and professionally?  

From adult beginners to more advanced adults, we offer a variety of educational opportunities to help you reach your goals. Our entire programming is designed to help you re-position yourself through foundational academic classes and career training.  

You're an Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) student if you are looking to prepare for the High School Equivalency (HSE/GED®, Bi-Lingual HSE/GED®) or to improve your English. You may be interested in our courses for non-native speakers if you want to improve your language skills (ESL and ESL for Professionals). Both types of courses are offered as 16-week classes.  

All classes are free to residents of Tarrant County.

You will learn to:   

  • Improve basic skills in reading, writing, and math   
  • Improve skills  to  receive  your GED®
  • Upgrade your academic skills
