Brush Up
Brush Up is designed for people entering college or want more training to "brush up" on their skills. These courses are self-paced and individualized to the specific needs of the adults and the training they are seeking. There are three areas of concentration:

  • Mathematics — includes a review of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, geometry and algebra
  • English — includes grammar and writing skills
  • Reading — includes a self-paced, individualized course with vocabulary building, comprehension improvement and critical thinking.

English as a Second Language
This course is for adults 18 years of age and older whose native language is not English. Students will experience an improved use of the English language. For those seeking help with reading and math, Basic Skills classes are also available. Placement tests are available to help in determining the level of instruction. Students use computer-assisted instruction using the newest, most effective software. To request more information, please contact one of the Adult Education centers below:
