College and Career Readiness

The mission of College and Career Readiness is to offer adults the opportunity to improve their literacy skills and acquire the necessary knowledge for success in employment, self-sufficiency, and/or higher education.

College and Career Readiness assists interested adults 18 years or older who have not earned a high school credential and offers remediation services to individuals who have earned a credential. Non-high school graduates, ages 16 and 17, may also enroll with special permission. The Division of College and Career Readiness also supports the communities and citizens of Edgecombe County by hosting community events throughout the year and working closely with our community partners.

The following College and Career Readiness programs are offered to assist adults in reaching their goals:

  • Adult Basic Education I
  • Adult Basic Education II
  • High School Equivalency
  • Adult High School Diploma
  • Basic Skills Plus
  • English Language Acquisition
  • Stackable Credentials

College and Career Readiness classes enable students to work at their own pace. Some individualized instruction is provided. Classes are taught on the Tarboro and Rocky Mount campuses. Off-campus classes are located at various sites throughout Edgecombe County.
