Adult education empowers individuals to become self-sufficient, and to obtain the necessary skills for future employment and success. Also, because a parent is a child’s first teacher, adult education helps parents obtain the necessary skills to become full partners in their children’s success. Finally, adult education assists adults in obtaining their secondary school diploma.

Under the guidelines of Title II of the Workforce Investment Act, the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, Red River Technology (Duncan Adult Learning Center) has been funded to provide educational services for adults below the collegiate level in the following areas:

  • GED® Preparation
  • Adult Education and basic skill instruction in reading, writing and mathematics
  • Life skills and coping skills
  • English as a Second Language classes offer limited English speaking adults an opportunity to learn both spoken and written communication and survival skills
  • Job Readiness (WorkKeys Career Readiness Certification)
  • Workplace Literacy and training – Through partnerships with business and industry, customized, job-specific instructional programs are developed and taught to entry level workers at the work site.
  • Family Literacy classes offers adult education, parenting skills, early childhood education for the children, and parent and child together time, empowering families to break the cycle of under education and poverty.
  • Supporting adults with learning disabilities

GED® Prep and basic instruction in reading, math, and grammar classes are currently available to adults free of charge.
