Adult Education Enrollment Starts Next Week – Herald Democrat
Grayson College Adult Education and Literacy welcomes high school graduates, English language learners, and those wishing to update their math and reading skills on August 31 or September 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. You can register for free classes without reservation. To register, simply walk into the Advanced Technology building on the main campus of Grayson College in Denison. Registration can be completed in most languages and our Spanish-speaking staff will assist you immediately.
Students must bring a government-issued ID to enroll. Guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must bring the most recent withdrawal form from school. It may take several hours to complete the registration process as class placement requires an evaluation. Classes are now offered face-to-face and online, with a variety of class times available.
“A high school diploma and strong English proficiency are critical to higher education admission and, in turn, economic prosperity. By 2030, Texas Higher Education Coordinating At least 60% of children will need some form of tertiary education,” explains Ashley Trevino, Director of Adult and Literacy Education.
A worker’s income is directly linked to their educational attainment and is strongly correlated with their quality of life. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that people with a high school diploma earn an average of $600 more a month than those without a high school diploma. Over a lifetime, that income gap grows to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Higher education levels lead to better home ownership, health insurance coverage, family literacy, physical activity and nutrition, as reported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Center for Social and Health. Higher levels of community education also lead to lower crime and pollution rates.
