East Area Adult School is administered by the Polk County School Board and provides adults with educational opportunities in the eastern portion of the county (Auburndale, Davenport, Ft. Meade, Haines City, Lake Wales, Wahneta, and Winter Haven). The main campus is in Auburndale, but off-campus classes are held at convenient locations throughout Polk County. All courses are only $30.00 per semester.
Students who need help with basic skills such as math or reading, can successfully complete the Adult Basic Education courses for entry into the GED® program. Services are also available for students seeking to learn English (for Speakers of Other Languages).
The GED®, or General Educational Development, is at the heart of the program. Established in 1942, the GED® is universally recognized as the equivalent of a traditional high school diploma. Last year, Polk County’s adult education program awarded more than 150 GEDs to graduating students. The GED® program is offered at a minimal charge to any qualifying adult, 16 years or older.
East Area Adult School provides day, evening, and online classes.
