Adult Education

Chattahoochee Technical College’s Adult Education program focuses on those who lack necessary skills in reading, writing, math, or English language proficiency as well as on those who have not attained a high school diploma or GED. The Adult Education program has learning centers in most counties in the college’s service area. All classes are offered free of charge and include a variety of services such as personal academic assessment, individualized instructional plans, and classes in reading, writing, math, and English. Several learning centers are open days and evenings. A schedule of programs available in each applicable county may be obtained by calling the Adult Education Office at 770-975-4271 or visiting the Adult Education section of the college's website.

The Adult Education program also offers employers, through contractual agreement with the college, programs that address specific employer needs, adult basic skills, GED preparation, and English Literacy for employees whose native language is not English. Classes are usually offered at the employer’s site for employees only and are closed to the general public.

The ultimate goal of students in the Adult Education program is to attain the GED (General Education Development) diploma. Chattahoochee Technical College is designated as an official test center for administering the GED test. Multiple testing sites are located in the college’s service area. Those who make satisfactory scores on this test will receive a GED diploma from the Technical College System of Georgia and will receive a $500 voucher if they choose to continue their education by enrolling in a HOPE-eligible institution.
