Adult Education

The administration, faculty, and staff of the Ouachita Area Adult Education Centers are experienced, ready and able to offer more than just GED preparation and testing at our facilities in Malvern and Sheridan, as well as our part-time programs in Leola and Bismarck. If you are preparing to enter college or any other post-secondary school you can visit us to brush up on your basic skills in preparation of your entrance examination. If you are preparing to enter the workforce, you can come by and work in the Workforce Alliance for growth in the economy (WAGE™) Program. You can earn any of the five state recognized certificates. They are: Employability, Industrial, Clerical, Bank Teller, or Customer Support I and II. Many business and industries give priority hiring to our WAGE graduates.

English as a Second Language (ESL), and work-based basic education are available to individuals or employers. These services, as well as others are FREE. Our Staff will also come to your business location to work with your employees, if needed.

Remember - All of our services are free of charge - the only thing that you have to provide is your interest, energy, and effort.

As of January 2014, there will be a charge for taking the official GED test - please come in before that time and compete for FREE.
