Thank you for your interest in Adult Education programs at Southern Westchester BOCES. The Center for Adult and Community Services provides an array of Workforce Development Training programs that include Healthcare, Technology and Trades. All job training programs require a minimum of six students enrolled to run.
We want all our students to achieve success. It is recommended for successful completion that students enrolling in job training programs have a minimum grade level of 8 in math and reading (equivalent to Grade 8 in school). Funding sources are available through our workforce partners at https://adulted.swboces.org/community_partners. Some programs require a high school diploma to complete certification exams. We offer tuition free high school equivalency instruction and English to Speakers of Other Languages in our Adult Literacy Center. Please see our information under "Adult Literacy."
