Department of Adult Education

  • To provide a variety of high-quality educational services to BPS parents, children, employees, and other Boston residents to develop their educational status, political status, economic status, and lives.

    Who We Are 

    We are focused on responding to adults in need of education and have recognized that critical to the success of every child’s education is parent and family involvement. In order to improve learning for all children, educational opportunities are made available for parents and other adults in the community.

    What We Do

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


Memo for students in Adult Education


    Dear Adult Ed Students, 

    As you know, the Boston Public Schools and all schools across the state of Massachusetts are closed through the 2019-20 school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, we would like you to know that the teachers and staff at the Department of Adult Education are here to help you. We have created a website (click the link) where you will find information related to your classes and additional supports that you may need during this time. By now, all of you should have heard from each of your teachers. Please check the website frequently as we will be posting updates and new resources as we receive them.
