Adult Education


SMCC is committed to helping our students achieve their educational goals in obtaining their high school equivalency diploma.  This will change their lives forever and put them on the path to a new career, college, or to advance in their current job.  We help our students develop critical thinking skills and self-confidence that will help them achieve great things. Our career navigator is dedicated to helping our learners plan for their future and help them deal with challenges as they follow through to their dreams.  Smart Start helps our students learn and practice good work habits and the effective communications skills they need to secure meaningful employment. We value our relationships with our students and want to help them reach their fullest potential.
