A free Distance Learning option that offers flexible hours and enhanced support for qualified individuals will be available at the starting mid-October.
The program targets adult students studying for the high school equivalency exam known as HiSET (formerly GED) or preparing for college.
Participants must be age 16 or older and not currently enrolled in high school, have basic computer skills and access to the Internet, complete an orientation, and be able to commit 5 to 10 hours per week to the program.
Students at the Pittsfield Adult Learning Center can also use the free Distance Learning option to combine traditional course work with online learning. Some students may also be able to fast track their preparation for the new HiSET test.
Located at 141 North St., the Pittsfield Adult Learning Center has an open enrollment policy.
Free classes are offered throughout the day and evening for adult learners who want to pass the HiSET exam, obtain an Adult High School Diploma, learn English as a Second Language, or strengthen basic skills in reading, writing, spelling, math, computer literacy, and college and career readiness.
