Clarendon County Adult Education will host its first registration and orientation sessions for the 2016-17 school year at 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday at Central Carolina Technical College's F.E. DuBose Campus, 3351 Sumter Hwy., Manning.

All new and returning students, including daytime and evening students, must participate in the sessions before beginning classes.

Dates for additional registration and orientation sessions for the semester include Sept. 12-13, Oct. 17-18 and Nov. 28-29.

Classes will start on Aug. 29 at the F.E. DuBose Campus and Sept. 13 at the Summerton and Turbeville locations. The Summerton location is at the Clarendon School District One Community Resource Center, 1154 4th St., Summerton, and the Turbeville location is at East Clarendon Middle-High School, 1170 Pope St., Turbeville.

Students in the adult ed program can choose between the GED program or the high school diploma.

GED is a group of four subject tests - literacy, mathematics, science and social studies - that measures a core of knowledge and skills essential for career and college readiness. The test certifies that the test taker has high school-level academic skills.

The other option includes completing enough credit hours to receive a regular high school diploma.

The adult ed program also provides preparation for job entrance exams such as WorkKeys and ParaProfessional, Citizenship/English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, literacy and COMPASS, CCTC's entrance exam.
