Adult Education Gives Many an Opportunity to Restart!

There are many benefits in enrolling in an Adult Education program. It provides many with the opportunity to be a part of a dynamic program that offers classes for "free" and services needed to balance out the everyday demand. Here are just a few benefits:

  • The adult education experience is different.

  •  Many students work, have families.

  • Most of the students are between 20 and 40 years of age; but a large number are over 40 years of age.

  • Adults have a foundation of knowledge and can apply what they know to what they are learning, which makes learning easier.

  • Every year of education adds almost $10,000 a year to income. Over a 40-year period, that can add up to over $400,000 in a lifetime.

  • Students that complete the Adult Education Program have the skills needed to get their Georgia Work Ready Certificate, pass the college entrance test and get their GED diploma.

  • Upon completing ESL courses and requirements, former ESL students can make that seamless transition into the ABE/GED program.

  • A counselor helps direct students through the admission and financial aid process to enroll in the college.

  • There is no charge to enroll in the Adult Education Program.

                                The Cobb/Paulding County Adult Education Center Philosophy
    Believing that learning is a life-long process, the Cobb/Paulding Adult Education program dedicates itself to recognizing and developing the potential of each student. The staff and faculty lead students in the formation of educational goals. We believe that by giving each student a "restarting point" and providing a self-paced program to accomplish his/her goals, the student has the opportunity to be a productive and well-adjusted person.

    Come join us, and let us help you push the "RESTART" button! If you are a student here... that is good. If you encourage a friend to enroll... that is just great! If and when you share your success story with your family and that is "priceless!"

    We look forward to serving you.
