Adult Education Students “skillUP” in Class, Careers, and Community
Ogeechee Technical College

The Ogeechee Technical College Adult Education Program is preparing for a new school year. While students get a small break from the classroom, faculty and staff are looking ahead to create new experiences for future students that will increase their skill sets to make them successful college students, valuable employees to local industries, and active citizens in the community.

This school year our students will ‘skillUP’, said Samantha Smith, Dean of Adult Education at Ogeechee Technical College. “We have re-evaluated our approach to service delivery for our students and recognize that the needs extend well beyond GED attainment. We want to provide our students a learning experience that will focus on building skills that will not only help them achieve their GED credential, but also transfer into any post-secondary educational opportunity, and or entry into the workforce,” Smith said.  

Not every student who enrolls in the Adult Education program will need a GED. Additional academic and career preparation opportunities are also available to include:  math, reading, writing, basic computer, and soft skills training (GeorgiaBest curriculum), personal finance sessions for family budgeting and educational planning, as well as referrals for, and education on, the resources that are available in each community. These are just a few of the services available through Ogeechee Technical College’s Adult Education Program.

Those interested in the Adult Education services at Ogeechee Technical College may call any one of the College’s three Adult Education offices. In Bulloch County, (912) 871-1721, in Evans County, call (912) 739-2959, and in Screven County, (912) 564-7326.
