Chattahoochee Tech Adult Education Program expands in Cobb County
Starting this fall, Chattahoochee Technical College is expanding its Adult Education program in Cobb County, providing more convenient opportunities for individuals who did not complete high school to earn a high school equivalency.
The college will offer free high school equivalency preparation classes at its Mountain View Campus, commencing this month, and at the Marietta Campus from mid-October.
The free classes will aid individuals in preparing for the exams required for obtaining a high school equivalency, which is a recognized alternative to a traditional high school diploma. The exams offered include the General Educational Development (GED) test and the High School Equivalency (HSE) test.
In the previous fiscal year, the Chattahoochee Tech Adult Education program enrolled 1,509 students at learning centers located in Bartow, Cherokee, Gilmer, Paulding, and Pickens counties, with 381 of these students being Cobb County residents. With the addition of the Cobb sites, the program aims to increase its student enrollment to at least 1,725 next year. The classes at the Marietta Campus will be easily accessible, located just steps away from a bus stop.
Aside from high school equivalency preparation, the Chattahoochee Tech Adult Education program also offers adult literacy programs, English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction, and civics education.
