Fort Scott Community College offers adult education courses to help students prepare for the GED, basic math and reading skills, employment skills, and preparation and transition to college. Individuals who complete the adult education courses have the option to earn a GED, Basic Computer Skills Certificate, and Kansas Work Ready Certificate.
Adult education courses are open to students aged 16 and over. Students under the age of 18 must have a parental waiver of compulsory attendance in order to be able to attend classes. The form can be obtained from the last school district the student attended.
Participation is compulsory on all orientation days. The lesson times are Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The adult education center is located in the Student Success Center in Bailey Hall.

I am currently trying to rebuild my personal classroom, but I also offer online courses. These courses can be for students without a diploma or for anyone who needs to review their basic reading and / or math skills. I’ve had students visiting my class to better prepare for college entry, qualify for a program like KansasWorks, or just learn how to use a computer and brush up on technology skills. Students can enroll in the ABE class if they lack basic skills, even if they have an HS diploma or GED.
I accept students who are willing to learn. All you have to do is contact me to make an appointment to fill out the documents and carry out the TABE pre-assessment. I will be accepting new students for 2-3 weeks. If the students are not ready to start right away, our next orientation will be in March. If you know someone who is interested please send them my way.
