Adult Education

It's Never Too Late to Graduate

In partnership with the Literacy Council of SWLA and Central Louisiana Technical Community College, adult education classes are offered at SOWELA. These classes prepare individuals to take the Hi-SET™ exam, formerly known as the GED. Classes are offered year-round and cover career exploration, adult basic education, and college transition.
