North Shore Community College’s Adult Learning Center has moved to the college’s Danvers campus, 1 Ferncroft Road. Formerly housed in the Cummings Center in Beverly, the Adult Learning Center provides students with free educational opportunities to improve their basic academic skills, achieve high school equivalency and prepare for further education and job training. Professional instructors, experienced tutors and advising staff work as a team to support individual growth.
Classes will begin at the new location September 14. They are held three days a week between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
In addition, residents with or without a high school diploma who are thinking about a career in Health Care are eligible for the Adult Career Pathways component of the Adult Learning Center. Math, English and Science topics are taught with a particular focus on health care careers. Once they graduate, students receive individual support to help them take the next step and achieve their goals. Classes meet three afternoons a week during the hours of 1 to 5 p.m. for 26 weeks and will begin September 15, 2015. Pre-registration is required.
Anyone who is at least 16 years old, and is not currently enrolled in high school is eligible. Interested students must make an appointment for a required assessment to determine class placement. Call 978-236-1229 to schedule an appointment with a staff person.
