Kalamazoo Adult Education

The Community Education Center, known to all as "Old Central," is the home of Kalamazoo Adult Education. The citizens of Kalamazoo have been able to attend classes here for more than 100 years. During the late 1800s, evening classes were started in the areas of business, home economics, citizenship, and English for immigrants. Over the years, the program has changed and grown with the needs of our community. This program has established itself as a quality program designed to meet the unique needs of the adult learners in the region. The program has served up to 1000 students and awarded up to 150 General Education Development (GED) certificates. All services and classes are free for students who do not have high school diplomas and who are at least 18 years old by July 1st of the academic year. We offer soft skills, technology skills, ESL, IELCE, ABE (academic improvement), and GED. Please call 269.337.0422 for more information.
