About Adult and Community Education

  • There are two facilities that offer adult and community education:  Adult Learning Center at the Center for Academics and Innovation (in Moncks Corner) and Fishburne Educational Center (in Hanahan). We serve students 17 years of age and older, and we firmly believe that it is never too late to for anyone to achieve their goal of obtaining a high school credential, sharpening their academic skills, or learning English. All programs are available to registered students, and testing is available for both students and members of the community.
