INSIDE ADULT EDUCATION
We are committed to offering an outstanding selection of academic and career technical training in convenient locations taught by experienced instructors who understand the unique needs of adult learners. Our program has gone through some recent restructuring, and students are now classified into three types. To better understand the information in this brochure, the three main categories of students are defined below: (Note that a student may fall into more than one category.) The enrollment process is different for each category of student, so please note the enrollment information listed in each section of our website.
Career Technical Student
These are students taking Career and Technical Education classes that are designed to give them entry level skills in a trade program. Tuition rates vary by eligibility. Please see the Career Technical Programs page for further explanation of tuition rates and eligibility. Career Technical Education students are required to re-register for each trimester or semester.
These are students who are 20 or over as of September 1, of the current school year, and who enroll in one of the following academic classes: Academic Skill Development, GED Prep, or High School Completion. Academic classes are free of charge for participants. After participants complete the Orientation and Assessment Testing and are placed into classes, the students will remain registered through the end of the school year unless they choose to officially drop or are dropped by attendance violations.
These are students who are 16-19 years of age as of September 1 of the current school year, are non graduates, and live in Bay or Arenac county, who enroll in the following academic classes: GED Prep or High School Completion. Academic classes are free of charge for pupils. After pupils register they will be scheduled for an orientation session. Once the orientation is completed students will be placed into classes and they will begin working on their coursework. Students will remain registered through the end of the school year unless they choose to officially drop or are dropped by attendance and or progress violations.
In addition to the academic and career technical classes, the adult education department is also an official GED testing center. The GED Exam is typically offered once a month.
Annual Graduation Ceremonies
There is an annual graduation ceremony at the end of the school year for all students who compete a career technical program certificate, successfully pass the GED exam, or earn a high school diploma.
