    Why Adult Education is Important in South Carolina? 

    The majority of all employment opportunities require some level of postsecondary education or training. To support South Carolina’s economic growth and ensure South Carolinas are gaining long-term employment in high-demand fields that provide sustainable wages, more adults must earn postsecondary credentials, from short-term certifications to associate degrees – and beyond. Rock Hill Adult Education is the starting point for a significant number of adults who need to build their academic and employment skills for today’s workforce, including those who must earn a GED® diploma before they move forward to training programs and postsecondary education.
