If you are an adult and want to learn English or improve your English-language skills, or if you want to 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 your needs.
A range of English-language classes are offered, from beginning literacy to advanced ENL (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.
