Adult Education and Literacy

The Adult Education and Literacy Program provides adults with sufficient basic education that enables them to effectively acquire the basic educational skills necessary for literate functioning; participate in job training and retraining programs; obtain and retain employment; and continue their education to at least the level of completion of secondary school and preparation for post-secondary education.  We have many partners throughout our 11 counties of the North Texas Workforce Board and continually seek to build new partnerships to improve our services to communities and provide our classes at no cost to the students. 

Adult Education and Literacy Program Services provide the following:

  • English as a Second Language Classes (ESL)
  • Adult Basic Education and Literacy (ABE)
  • Academic Work-Based Readiness and Life Skills
  • Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency Preparation (formally GED) Classes (HSE)
  • College & Career Readiness Classes
  • Financial literacy


Philosophy and Mission of Adult Education and Literacy


Every Texan, regardless of age, is entitled to a basic education.


The mission of Adult Education and Literacy is to ensure that all adults who live in Texas have the skills necessary to function effectively in their personal and family lives, in the workplace, and in the community.
