Adult Education - Our Mission

  • 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.

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

    We provide basic 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.

     

We are accepting applications for September 2020
