What is adult education? Adult education serves adults 16 years of age and older who are no longer in school and are functioning below the high school completion level. Services include foundation skills (reading, mathematics, and English) coupled with college and career readiness skills leading to adult secondary education and transitioning to post secondary. Local programs are conducted by combinations of public schools, community-based organizations, and community colleges.
