Adult Education

Hardee County's Adult Education education system includes a range of instructional programs that help adults get the basic skills they need to be productive workers, family members, and citizens. The major program areas are ABE, GED® Preparation, and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). These programs emphasize skills such as reading, writing, math, and English language competency.
