TCSG Honors Program Performance for STC Adult Education

SAVANNAH – Recently, the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) Office of Adult Education recognized Savannah Technical College’s Adult Education Program for exceeding educational gain benchmarks in fiscal year 2012 (July 1, 2011 – June 30, 2012). These goals were set for Adult Basic Education (ABE) and Adult Secondary Education (ASE).

     This award recognizes the program’s performance in improving student academic performance. Across the two categories, there were six goals that the program met.ABE and ASE students currently make up 89% of the Savannah Tech’s Adult Education Program.

     Adult Education is considered a public educational benefit, so classes are free to U.S. citizens and individuals with appropriate immigration paperwork. Students are placed into classes at one of six levels based on their Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) results. Each subject: reading, math and language has its own level. Each student has a personal plan, and instructors counsel students on their next step(s) toward reaching their personal, academic or career goal(s).

      To be eligible for the Adult Education program, applicants must meet all of the following requirements: 16 years of age or older, withdrawn or otherwise not enrolled in school, a U.S. citizen or legal residency status, appropriate Adult Education program documentation – completed and submitted, and complete the Adult Education program admission process.

     Savannah Technical College teaches adult education classes in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty Counties with multiple locations in each community including College’s campuses in Savannah, Rincon and Hinesville.
