Students are placed in a class based on TABE results. Teachers will provide instruction in weak areas as indicated by the TABE results. Classes are offered in the morning, afternoon, and night to meet the needs of students. Students are reassessed based on attendance and progress and are moved to other classes until TABE results indicate student is ready to take the GED. Once a student graduates, he/she is invited to attend the annual Adult Education Graduation ceremony.
About Adult Education
Since its inception over forty years ago, Lancaster County Adult Education has played a vital role in lifelong learning. Students have the opportunity to move in the process from a non-reader through Adult Basic Education to his/her goal of High School Diploma or GED completion. Upon entrance to the Literacy Program, a student may be tutored in a reading or math lab. After completing that phase, the student is then referred to the Adult Education Program to prepare for the GED.
The program’s attraction to the student is the low cost tuition, convenient location, flexible hours and the empathy for the student by community-based personnel. During the 2009-2010 academic year, Lancaster County Adult Education/Literacy served approximately 1,020 students.
We invite you to take advantage of our educational and occupational courses. Expand your knowledge and opportunities. We will be glad to help in any way possible to make your educational experience successful.
