Adult Education (AE) is a vital link in the continuing educational process, serving adult students sixteen (16) years of age or older at all educational levels. These courses include preparation for the high school equivalency assessment, improving basic skills , literacy development, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), and special topics classes.  The Adult Education Program works closely with Literacy Volunteers of the Eastern Panhandle, Inc. to address adult literacy needs in the region.        

In addition to the traditional Adult Education Program, we also offer Strategic Planning in Occupational Knowledge for Employment and Success (SPOKES) courses at some of our locations.  SPOKES is a year-round adult education program consisting of work-based academics and job preparation skills offered through a contract between the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) Office of Adult Education and Workforce Development and the Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), in collaboration with the Region 7 Workforce Development Board.  This program provides classes with daily activities that address academic skills and "soft skills" necessary for adults to pursue and retain gainful employment.
