Claiborne County Adult Education Program

Claiborne County Adult Education program offers instruction in Basic Skills, Pre-GED®, GED® Preparation and English as a Second or Optional Language (ESOL) for non-native speakers of English.

Students must be 18 years old and have officially withdrawn from the last school attended before attending Adult Education classes.

Materials and instruction is free of charge.  Adult Education is funded by Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development and Claiborne County Board of Education.

Adult Education teachers are certified.  Students work in small and large group settings.  Classes are leveled according to needs of students with students progressing at their own pace.  The goal of Adult Education is to provide instruction promoting students success in obtaining a GED® and continuing their education.

Students completing their GED® will be honored during a yearly graduation ceremony.  The event is a full cap and gown ceremony.  Students may invite friends and relatives to attend.

To achieve a GED® in the State of Tennessee students must take a GED® Practice Test.  The practice test is the same difficulty as the real GED® but half the amount of questions and half the time.  Once a student has completed the test he or she will be given a transcript which is required to sign up to take the official test.  Students must take the GED® test at an official state testing center.  Claiborne County Adult Education refers students to the Walters State Community College Testing Center.  The fee for the complete battery test is $65.  Individual tests are $13.

Registration begins with Orientation which is held twice weekly to accommodate various schedules.  Orientation times are as follows:

Tuesday  8:30 a.m.
