A Message from Our Principal

Welcome to adult education!

Whether you are in need of a high school equivalency diploma, a brush-up to re-enter the workforce, or want to change careers, we have programming to help you meet your goal.

We are currently registering students for our high school equivalency classes face-to-face and online. To register, please call our office at (812) 346-7830 between 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to schedule an in-person registration appointment or to set up a remote registration time. If you call after office hours, leave us a message telling us the best way and time to reach you. 

Safety is our first priority. We are only allowing six students to register at a time. This will allow us to maintain social distancing. Wearing a mask is mandatory to enter our facility. 

The same is true for our HSE classrooms. We are only allowing six students to attend each session with assigned seats that are separated to maintain distance. Over-flow students will be put on a wait list and can start class when a spot opens up.

In-person HSE class sessions are available at the following times: morning (Monday through Thursday) from 9:00 to 11:45 a.m., afternoon (Monday through Thursday) from noon to 2:45 p.m., late afternoon (Mondays and Wednesdays only) from 3:30 to 6:15 p.m., and evening (Tuesdays and Thursdays only) from 5:30 to 8:15 p.m.

A virtual online class will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. You will need a device - computer, laptop, or Chromebook, along with internet, to attend this virtual session.

We continue to offer occupational certification trainings.  See our scheduled trainings are listed under the Program and Services tab.

During COVID-19 we may have to adjust classes and trainings to virtual learning, but we will do our best to continue educational opportunities.

Best regards,

    Janice Suding
