Adult Education


In partnership with Community Action Inc.'s (CAI) Adult Education Program, we provide High School Equivalency (HSE) preparation in both English and Spanish, as well as English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. All classes are held at the Bagdad Learning Center (portables behind Bagdad Elementary School).

While Bagdad Learning Center classes are held in the evenings, CAI offers other day and evening class options in the Cedar Park, with integrated computer literacy instruction.
