FREE classes for Adults!
  • The Parkway-Rockwood Community Education Adult Education and Literacy program provides FREE virtual online and in-person classes for adult students. Classes begin September 18th and are ongoing. New students are added to classes every two or three weeks. All students are required to have a current placement test on file prior to beginning classes. Testing will be done in-person at multiple testing locations throughout the St. Louis County area. Once our office receives your application, a staff member will contact you to set up an appointment for testing and/or orientation.

    English as a Second Language classes are for students whose first language is not English. Students in beginning classes learn to speak, listen for understanding, read, and write English. Intermediate and advanced students have the opportunity to improve conversation, grammar, pronunciation, reading, and writing.

    High School Equivalency (HSE) classes are for those students who do not have a high school diploma, and who want classes to help prepare for the HiSET (GED) test. Students will study math, language, reading, social studies, and science. Students who already have a high school diploma are also welcome to attend HSE classes. These students will learn how they can improve basic reading, writing, and math skills. Students whose first language is not English need to take a placement test to qualify for HSE classes.
