College and Career Readiness Information
A Better Career Begins with the First Step
College and Career Readiness has six programs to help you function more effectively on the job, at home and in life.
College and Career Readiness (C&CR) is a free educational program created specifically for adults. Each of the six targeted programs is designed to improve your reading, writing, functional mathematics and communication skills so you can better achieve your goals in life as well as a career. C&CR is designed for flexibility to allow one to take classes without disrupting their work schedule. The six programs that are offered are Adult High School (AHS), High School Equivalency (HSE), Family Literacy, Adult Basic Education (ABE), English as a Second Language (ESL) and Adult Basic Education Transition (ABET). Each of these programs will help a person with their beginning steps. (See more information about the programs that are listed to the right)
There are three approaches to post-secondary education: awareness and orientation, counseling and referral activities, and the comprehensive program. College and Career Readiness offers a step-by-step process to assist students to be successful in the career of their choice. The student will begin by testing for the TABE Test then attend orientation where they will learn about opportunities that may assist them with credentials through the process.
