Career Planning

Adult Education is not just a place where you come to earn a diploma or certifications. It is where you come to learn how to be successful–whatever success means to you. During enrollment, we discuss your career plans. We help you identify your strengths, interests, and opportunities to contribute, and picture yourself in five years, doing the kind of work you would like to do. We help you figure out where you are going–and create a plan to get there.

A Smart Start to Top-Notch Training

Your journey to a better life begins with Smart Start, the smart curriculum for success. Learn the skills you need to succeed professionally while earning valuable certifications.

High School Equivalency Diploma (GED/HiSET) Classes

Sure, we help you prepare for your GED or HiSET exam to earn an HSE diploma–which is the legal equivalent of a high-school diploma in the state of Mississippi. But we offer much more than that:

  • Reading skills to help you understand the mountain of information you face daily.
  • Math skills to help you understand how the world works and solve problems.
  • Learning skills to help you continually improve at modern life’s most important ability–the ability to constantly learn new information.
  • Advising to help you move to the next level–whether that next level is college, training, military, or work. Wherever you are going, we help you get there.


Our most dedicated students are invited to apply to our in-house scholarship program, MIBEST–the Mississippi Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training Program. Choose from a wide selection of short-term training and college-degree pathways–while you earn your HSE diploma–and get incredible support along the way:

  • Paid tuition and college fees.
  • Help with travel and meal expenses.
  • Team-teaching to help you move on to college or workforce training more easily.
  • High-school-equivalency (HSE) diploma.
  • National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC).
  • Smart Start work-readiness skills.
  • College or industry-based credentials.
  • At least 6 Career Technical Education (CTE ) credits.
  • Workforce certifications.

  • Paid internships to help you build valuable work experience–and get paid to do it!
  • One-on-one counseling to guide you to a better future.
