Adult Education Programs

Adult education programs provide basic skills classes to adults with less than a high school education. Adult education in Arkansas is based on the following philosophy: 

  • All adults can learn.
  • All adults have the right to education that enhances their ability to effect positive changes in their lives.
  • All adults have the right to obtain the life skills that they need to become self- sufficient, actively participating members of society.
  • All adults have the right to complete their education through the high school level.
