Adult Education - Our Mission

  • The Boston Public Schools Department of Adult Education provides a variety of flexible programs to ensure that Boston residents have access to quality instruction, job training, and college and career advising. We honor the diversity of our students by promoting equity and inclusion.

    For over 140 years, Boston Public Schools has responded to adults needing education and recognized that parent and family involvement is critical to every child’s education. To improve learning for all children, educational opportunities are made available for parents, caregivers, and other adults in the community.

    We provide basic skills that prepare adults to enter the workforce, higher education, and job training. Our students represent the Boston community: native-born Americans and immigrants who need educational credentials, such as English language skills and math proficiency, to compete in the workforce.
