For adults who want to learn English, improve their English-language skills, or earn a high school equivalency diploma, the Great Neck Public Schools Adult Learning Center offers a variety of classes during the day and evening designed to meet those needs.
A range of English-language classes are offered, from beginning literacy to advanced ENL, which stands for English as a New Language. In preparation for the TASC, Test Assessing Secondary Completion, formerly known as GED, examination, classes are available to improve math, reading, science, social studies, and writing skills. Once enrolled, students may also take elective classes such as Conversational English, Crossroads Café, and Citizenship, to name a few.
Registration for classes must be done in person at the Adult Learning Center on Wednesday, Dec. 6, or Thursday, Dec. 7, from 9 a.m.–noon, or from 6–9 p.m. or on Saturday, Dec. 9, from 9 a.m.–noon. Preference will be given to Great Neck residents and returning Adult Learning Center students. Please allow two hours to complete the registration process.
The non-refundable processing fee for classes is $50 for those who live or work in Great Neck (proof of residency or employment is required), and $100 for nonresidents. Payment, at time of registration, can be made in cash, credit card, check, or money order (payable to Great Neck Public Schools).
