Adult High School Diploma

The Adult High School Program (AHS) is designed to allow students the opportunity to complete a high school credential that mirrors a public school credential. The program is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. This diploma is the same as those offered through public school systems.

Basic Skills PLUS

Basic Skills Plus will enable students to co-enroll in HRD and Nurse Aide 1 while completing their High School Diploma Equivalency. Students will experience learning communities, integrated teaching, contextualized instruction, and collaborative partnerships in the community. This accelerated program will allow students to earn their CPR certification, CRC certification, High School Equivalency, and Nurse Aide 1 certification in less than one year with minimal tuition/fees.

English as a Second Language

This class will quickly improve the adult learner’s ability to speak, read, listen, and write the English language. Any adult student who does not speak English as their native language can enroll with no fees or tuition costs. Students will have the opportunity to use CASAS listening assessments, Rosetta Stone, All Stars, Milestones Reading Library, video streaming, and other online tools. The program is designed to move adult learners through the six levels of ESL instruction through small group instruction and ongoing assessment.

Foundations

Brunswick Community College’s Adult Ed program is designed to improve students reading, communication, problem solving, computation, and writing skills. Instruction includes practical, real-life content that will prepare adults for employment, family finances, parenting, and contemporary society. Students can expect this program to lay the foundation for further higher education opportunities and higher income earnings.

High School Diploma Equivalency (GED®)

This program prepares adults to take the General Education Development Test (GED®). The test assesses academics in the following areas: Language arts – writing; Language arts – reading; Social studies; Science; Mathematics.

Once a student has passed all five sections of the GED® Test, they are awarded the High School Diploma Equivalency, issued by the NC State Board of Community Colleges. There is no charge for the preparation classes; however, there is a onetime $35.00 fee for the GED® test. The instructors have several years of experience in the public and private sector. In addition, our classrooms are positive learning environments that utilize technology and collaborative learning.
