Adult Education & Literacy

Through our Adult Education Grants we are able to offer a variety of free classes and educational services.  We are currently able to offer Adult Education Classes through two different grants.

  1. We have an Adult Education and Literacy Grant through the Houston Galveston Area Council and the Texas Workforce Commission.  Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) Classes are basic education services offered to assist students in developing College and Career Readiness Skills.
  2. We have an Accelerate Texas II (ATX II) Grant through the Houston Galveston Area Council and the Texas Workforce Commission which is designed to integrate basic education and workforce training program career pathways for Adult students.  This grant currently offers career pathways in Healthcare, Information Technology, and Craft Trades.
