Adult Education

WorkReadyU, HiSET, ESL/ELA/EL Civics

The Northshore Technical Community College WorkReady U - Adult Education Department provides adult education and literacy services to our citizens across the region. A dedicated team of instructors prepare students for the HiSET exam to earn their high school equivalency diploma while readying them for a successful future in college or a career. We have five centers in four parishes providing morning, afternoon, and evening classes. Additionally, we provide English as a Second Language classes at our locations in Hammond and Slidell. Our FREE classes are offered to qualified students at our locations in Slidell, Lacombe, Hammond, Greensburg, Bogalusa, and Franklinton.

It is time to take that next step on your journey and we are ready to help you find success and achieve your goals.
