    Adult General Education (AGE) program:   

    Florida’s adult education system includes a range of instructional programs that help adults get the basic skills they need to be productive workers, family members, and citizens. The major program areas are Adult Basic Education (ABE), Adult High School (AHS), GED® Preparation, and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). These programs emphasize basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and English language competency. Adult education programs also help adult learners gain the knowledge and skills they need to enter and succeed in postsecondary education. 

    Adult Education students develop a career pathway portfolio utilizing MyCareerShines online career planning tool. Students explore post-secondary institutions, financial aid, employment/soft skills, and resume development. This platform is supported by the Florida Department of Education to assist adult education students in the selection of Career Pathways.
