Whether you’ve recently left school or have been out of class for years, our program works with students of all levels and ages to advance their education and accomplish their academic and professional goals.

  • Classes focus on building the skills necessary for success on the equivalency exam, which includes reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, and science.
