Adult Programs provide enrichment, academics and recreational opportunities for lifelong learners. Our class offerings encourage skill building, promote health and well-being, expand the mind and/or create a stronger community.
In each brochure, we offer a wealth of classes designed to provide adult learners with a place to learn more about their favorite hobby, learn a new skill, have fun with friends or meet new people.
From exercise classes like yoga, Zumba and POUND Fitness to recreational sports like pickleball, volleyball and basketball, Community Education offers a variety of opportunities designed to get you moving and your heart pumping.
Adult Basic Education is for adults, ages 17 and older, who are not enrolled in high school. Participating adults will learn reading and math basics, take part in English language classes or family literacy opportunities, prepare for citizenship, study for and take a test to get a GED (General Educational Development), or earn a certification in child care, computers, food service, health care and more. All classes are free to the student and are offered in partnership with the SouthWest Metro Intermediate District.
