Tennessee Adult Education division delivers educational services to adults who are over the age of 17 (unless granted an exception) lacking a high school diploma and no longer under compulsory attendance to public high school. Through Adult Basic Education classes across the state, adults are assessed to determine their level of education and provided coursework to improve their skills in math, science, social studies, reading, writing and employability. These classes are designed to equip the student with the knowledge necessary to earn a High School Equivalency Diploma and enter employment and/or postsecondary education. Adult Education also offers English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and Civics classes for those individuals who need to learn to speak, read, and write the English language. In addition to the administration of the Adult Education program grant, Tennessee Division of Adult Education is also responsible for the oversight and compliance of testing-centers administering High School Equivalency exams.
These services are offered in every county at Adult Learning Centers and to employers on-site at their request. Click here to find a location near you.
