What can Adult Education do for me?

The programs in our Adult Education program are designed to assist you in the development of your skills and knowledge for today’s workplace.

The HSE Program is available on a full or part time basis to accommodate your busy schedule.

We also offer the HSE program in satellite sites around the city if traveling downtown is not convenient.

If you need to study at home, we offer HSE Distance Learning Home Study Programs.

Whatever your circumstances may be, we will work with you to achieve your goals.

The Syracuse Literacy Zones are Working for YOU!

The Syracuse City School District has four Literacy Zones where we serve adults and their families as they pursue education, career and family goals.
