Polk Education Pathways

Adult High School classes offer courses for adults who have most of their high school credits, test above the ninth grade level on the TABE test, and wish to pursue the standard credit high school diploma, and should have graduated in 2016-2019. Eligible students may continue their pursuit of a traditional high school credit diploma, issued by Polk County Schools.

West Area Adult School offers a free preschool program on their main campus. The Pre-School and Family Literacy Program is eligible to the children (ages 3-5) of adult students enrolled full-time.
