Do you...

  • Need a high school diploma?
  • Want to know if you are ready for the High School Equivalency (HSE) exam?
  • Have a diploma but want to brush up on reading or math skills?
  • Want to improve your English language skills?
  • Want to enter a career training program?

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!

Need help connecting to local resources? The Syracuse City School District has four Literacy Zones where we serve adults and their families as they pursue education, career and family goals. Our case managers can assist in setting up a personal plan for you to achieve your goals.
