Adult Ed Logo

Adult Education at OCtech is here to help you restart or complete your education. Our classes run on a six-week rotation. All students must attend a four-day orientation session.

We offer:

  • GED and high school completion test preparation
  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • Digital Literacy certification
  • Career preparation activities

We’ll also work with you to develop an Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) or career readiness plan so you know exactly what your next step should be along the way.
