General Information

THE PURPOSE OF ADULT EDUCATION:
Our purpose is to assist adults to become literate and obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency. Also, to assist adults who are parents, to obtain the educational skills necessary to become full partners in the educational development of their children. Our classes are free of charge and we offer numerous class locations and schedules.

GENERAL INFORMATION:
Cleburne Adult Education services Erath, Johnson, Hood, and Somervell counties. We offer three general enrollment periods (Summer/July/8 weeks, Fall/ September/10-15 weeks, Spring/January/10-15 weeks). Open enrollment is available until a class is full or until we close enrollment. 

Most of our classes are in the evening, but we do offer morning classes at some of our locations (see schedules). We do observe the school calendar (of the city that the class is located in) for holidays as well as school closings. As an added bonus, a graduation ceremony is held at the end of the school year (May) to honor those who have received their GED! 

GED PREPARATION:
GED preparation classes are designed to assist adults in preparing for the General Education Development (GED) examination. Instructors teach Language Arts, Reading, Writing, Social Studies, Science and Mathematics according to each participants identified needs. Whether you need in–depth work in all content areas or just one, we can help ease your anxieties and gain the skills and confidence needed to successfully obtain your GED.
