Adult & Community Education

Striving to empower community members through a variety of educational opportunities

Located on Mandeville Ave. between Newnan Rd. & Austin Ave.
Through ACE, adults learn to read and write for the first time; immigrants learn to speak English; Americans learn to communicate with their Spanish-speaking neighbors; the un- and underemployed develop skills that help them find and maintain employment; children improve their academic competence as well as develop a love for stories, reading, STEM, and creative endeavors; and community members gain valuable insights into finance, healthcare, cooking, shopping, car maintenance, etc.

Adult Reading and Writing

Adult Reading and Writing classes are one-on-one, private sessions for English-speaking adults who never learned to read or write.  Adults who do not read are typically highly intelligent and have developed impressive skills that allow them to navigate the world without reading.  It is never too late to learn to read!  If you know someone who would like more information or wish to set up a session, please call 770.834.4007.

Cool Kids Club

While parents are learning English, the Cool Kids have their own Club.

Older children can bring homework and get help or tutoring, younger children engage in English immersion through play and games.  All Cool Kids participate in story time, singing, and crafts.  Each evening, Cool Kids may pick a book from the Kid's Book Closet to take home and keep.
Volunteers for Cool Kids Club are always needed.(Requires background check and training.)
