The mission of the College & Career Readiness Program (CCR) is to provide educational opportunities for adults who wish to improve their academic skills, complete their high school equivalency or diploma, and learn English language skills while also preparing for post-secondary education and/or employment. Students will be able to attend classes day or evening, on both campuses, and various locations in Craven County. All classes are free of charge and most materials are provided. For students aged 16 or 17 years old, special permission from a parent/guardian and the school district must be received before enrolling in any class in the CCR unit.

Our Programs

Adult Basic Education

This program is designed for students who function below the high school level based upon replacement test scores. Instruction is developed by qualified instructors by assessing individual diagnostics that will help the student meet their educational goals. Students must complete First Step class before enrolling to better determine needs.

First Step

The First Step class is required for all students enrolling in adult high school diploma or equivalency classes. The two-week class is packed with important information that will include placement testing, assessment of educational barriers, learning styles, and career interests. Students will be given one-on-one advising, and take their first step in completing their secondary education.

Adult High School Diploma

The Adult High School Diploma program helps individuals earn a diploma by offering classes to students with 14 or more qualifying high school credits. After the First Step class, students meet with qualified instructors to complete the specific classes needed. Additional hours may be earned online.

High School Equivalency

An alternate path to a high school diploma is the high school equivalency (GED, HiSET). After completing First Step or upon movement in the program, students are placed with qualified instructors for math/science and reading/language/social studies classes to prepare for the official exams. Online classes are available for those who qualify.

Transitions Academy

The Transitions Academy provides adults who have mild intellectual disabilities with the opportunity to continue their education by increasing skills in math, reading, and technology. This program also uses hands-on learning in career exploration to prepare students for work and other post-secondary programs.

English as a Second Language

ESL classes provide non-native speakers with instruction in speaking, listening, reading, and writing to improve English language proficiency in community, social, educational, and employment settings. Class information includes preparation for the Citizenship test and other secondary/postsecondary opportunities.

Family Literacy

The Family Literacy Program is for parents who require childcare while they learn. Our Family Literacy program includes free childcare, breakfast, lunch, and transportation to Vanceboro Farm Life or James W. Smith Elementary Schools, while also including parent/child classes. This program is in partnership with Craven County Schools.
