If you choose to take the High School Equivalency test, our student advisor and teachers work with you to design a plan for preparation that meets your schedule, logistics and academic needs.  There are many ways to prepare for the HiSET and many opportunities for on-site preparation - daytime hours and some limited evening availability. You’ll start with assessing your skills and then cover only the topics you need to pass the test.  Topics will include reading test questions, managing your time during the test, using all the available tools (i.e. formulas, calculator, review and marking buttons), reading charts, graphs and maps, writing an argumentative essay, focused reading, and math. When you’re ready, you’ll sign up to take the Official HiSET Test with our HiSET Chief Examiner.

Calendar Sep 18, 2017 at 2 pm, runs for 18 weeks

If you don't use it, you lose it! This is most notably true about math. Most of us read and write almost every day, but how many of us find the common denominator of a fraction regularly enough to make it stick in our brains? Work with our math teacher to change your perspective on math, eliminate your negative feelings and anxiety, and receive direct and targeted instruction. You'll use technology to practice the skills you learn directly from your teacher. Instructor Vanessa Richards has 16 years experience teaching all levels of mathematics, and has been dubbed the “Math Therapist.”  High School diploma credit is awarded for this course.

Math for Every Day

Free

with Vanessa Richards

Calendar Sep 18, 2017 at 11 am, runs for 20 weeks

One of the challenges about math is that since many of us don't use it every day, it's hard to remember what we've been taught. This course will cover math that we use every day - when we are shopping, doing projects around the house, balancing our checkbooks, or preparing our meals. We'll use a hands-on approach to learning math concepts so you can confidently use it in your daily life, as well as build skills and confidence to tackle more advanced math that you might want or need for school or work. High School diploma credit is awarded for this course.

The first step to taking this class is to request a meeting with our student advisor. Call Ellsworth Adult Education at 207.664.7110, email adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org or stop by our office located in the Mill Mall.

These days most jobs require strong office skills-technology (computers, phones, projectors, scanners, copiers), business writing and math, customer service skills and transferrable skills like reliability and initiative.

Ellsworth Adult Education is working with local businesses and organizations to offer a hands-on training program to prepare you to work for local employers.  From the beginning of the program, you’ll meet with local employers.  Informational and mock interviews, special projects and job shadows are all ways you might be involved.  You will build your skills, knowledge and confidence; earn a certificate valued by employers, and gain experience in a variety of employment settings.

Our standards-based program allows you to demonstrate mastery. Everyone comes to us with different strengths, so you will spend as much time as you need on the following areas: job readiness, customer service, office communications, business math, digital literacy, Microsoft Suite, Google Productivity Applications, internet research and keyboarding. Makeup class (if needed) 06/01/18.
