Adult Education provides academic instruction to adults (16 years of age and older) who are out of school. Students who attend want to increase their skills in order to obtain a job or job promotion; access vocational training; enter college; support their children in school; and/or become more active in their communities.

Through Adult Education, students can upgrade their Reading, Math, and Writing skills; increase their English language proficiency; prepare for the GED®; or complete their credits to obtain a State of Delaware high school diploma. Programs are available through the traditional classroom format or through virtual instruction.  Programs include:
More than 7,000 adult learners are served annually in through adult education programs; approximately 900 individuals take the GED® test; and more than 1,100 inmates participate in prison-based education programs. State funded family literacy programs emphasize parents helping children with school work, building a solid literacy base by reading to their children, and/or applying more effective parenting strategies.
