Adult Education

The Charles County Adult Education Program offers a variety of classes and preparation for a Maryland State High School Diploma. Specific classes offered include GED practice testing, English as a Second Language, and skills development. Classes usually meet two times a week for six hours per week. Also offered is the External Diploma Program which is a non testing program that provides another path leading to a Maryland State high school diploma. In External Diploma adult learners can take advantage of their life experiences and use them in obtaining their educational goals.

Orientation

Students over 18 years old, who wish to work toward a high school diploma, should first attend two short orientation sessions. During orientation the two pathways to a Maryland State high school diploma are presented. Students are evaluated before being assigned to a class that best suits their needs. The orientation sessions can be attended, by appointment, on either Thursday evenings or Friday mornings. The Thursday or Friday orientations are offered once each month.

Family Literacy

Family Literacy programs offer parents an opportunity to increase their education and employability while learning to support their children's development. These programs provide four integrated components to the family. Interactive literacy activities between parents and their children are combined with an age-appropriate education to prepare children for success in school and life experiences. There is parent literacy training that leads to economic self-sufficiency or instruction to help towards earning a high school diploma. There is also training for parents regarding how to be the primary teacher for their children and full partners in the education of their children.
