Adult Education

Cochise College Adult Education helps adult learners (ages 16 and over) acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the workforce or continue their education (College and Career Ready). Academic, technology and communication skills are the focus. Classes provide instruction for high school equivalency test preparation or English language acquisition for non-native speakers.

  • English Language Acquisition classes, for speakers of other languages, focus on reading, writing, speaking and understanding English.
  • Basic skills classes serve as a refresher course in reading, writing, and math.
  • GED classes prepare students to pass the GED exam.
  • A distance learning study option is available.
  • Computer skills classes are also available for students enrolled in another Adult Education class.
  • Transition planning for entry into post-secondary training, college, and career is a priority of the program.

All Adult Education classes are small, individualized, and centered on student goals. Classes are held on Cochise College campuses in Sierra Vista, Douglas, Benson and Willcox. There is a fee on a sliding scale based on income.
