Community Action’s Adult Education Program provides quality, goal-based educational services for the people of Skagit County to prepare them for engagement in the community (e.g. work, health care situations, parent/teacher relationships), post-secondary education, and the current workplace.
English classes help students improve their English language reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. The program also supports the educational development of children by providing early education activities and school-appropriate homework support for the children of students enrolled in some English Language classes.
The Adult Education Program also offers small-group learning and tutoring for adults who are planning to take their GED tests. We are not a school. We work with people to develop their individual goals and education plan, and we modify how we engage students depending on their learning styles.
GED classes are suspended at least until next fall when we hope to reopen them in a hybrid or online only format. For general questions about the GED, contact Claudia Morell at ClaudiaM2@communityactionskagit.org or (360) 588-5730.
In the meantime, please contact our partners at the Goodwill and Skagit Valley College for GED instruction:
English Language classes are available both in person and online. The in-person classes are in Burlington. The online class is in the evening, and we will lend Chromebooks for students to participate.
