College & Career Readiness

About College & Career Readiness

College & Career Readiness provides instruction for students requiring basic skills education, high school equivalency (HSE) preparation, English Language Learner (ELL) support and education for the intellectually disabled.

It is the goal of College & Career Readiness to help students gain the skills required to be successful in college, in the workplace and at home.

Adult Education

Adult Education is aimed at supporting students who are seeking education in basic skills, such as reading and math, and help preparing for the HSE tests that are needed to obtain a North Carolina equivalency diploma.

Adult High School (AHS)

The Adult High School program is offered cooperatively with a local public school system to offer adults an opportunity to earn an Adult High School (AHS) diploma through a curriculum of instruction that aligns with adult education and literacy activities and other core programs and one-stop partners. The curriculum includes the development of career pathways which provide access to employment and training services for students in the Adult High School program. Course and graduation requirements are in alignment with the standards established by the State Board of Education, the local education agency, and the local community college. The AHS diploma is issued in cooperation between the local boards of education and community college trustees with appropriate signatures representing both educational systems. Adult High School records and transcripts are maintained and issued by the community college where the AHS diploma was awarded.

Required Credits – Colleges must offer at least the minimum number of credits required for graduation by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
