Adult high school

An adult high school or adult school is a high school facility designed for adult education. It is intended for adults who have not completed high school to continue their education. Some adult high schools offer child care, special integration programs for immigrants and refugees, career counseling and other programs and services geared toward the special needs of adult students. Some adult high schools may also offer general interest programs such as computer skills or other continuing education courses.

A few cities in the United States and Canada have dedicated adult high school facilities. In most other cities, students age out of the system at 19 or 20 leaving them no other option than getting their GED or attend an online high school program. This is a problem for students who still need many classes to gain the skills they need to pass a GED test. This problem is compounded for the United States' growing foreign born population who are not familiar with the American school systems and are still learning English, especially if they come into the United States in their teens and are expected to catch up with their American peers by the time they reach the age of 19 or 20.


Samuel Fox is credited with helping William Singleton to start the first ‘Adult School’ in 1798. Initially, the classes were for young women from local lace and hosiery factories. William Singleton, a Methodist started the school, but it was Fox and the staff from his grocer shop that maintained it. Fox's staff was expected to teach at this school and Fox provided breakfast at 9 a.m. on a Sunday after they had completed two hours of teaching. The school grew to include men, but it was said that Fox was specifically interested in improving adult education. Lessons are believed to have started with a Bible reading, but the book was then used as a text book to enable scholars to practise reading and writing. Fox conducted lessons for three mornings a week for students of more advanced arithmetic and he would fund some to go to become teachers themselves.

Question:Hello i just wanted to ask you guys a quick question regrading penn foster i am currently a student and am taking human relations course and i love it but just want to compare the difference between high school ans distance course, i mean i feel good i have good grades but in the back of my mind am thinking the difference is i have an advantage to review the text book by taking the exam how big of a difference is this and did they give the same level of courses in hs?

Answers:I would look to see if your state offers the online virtual high school. You would be able to take online courses for free, whereas you have to pay for them at Penn Foster. Also, if you are 16, you can do dual enrollment and earn college credit through your local community college. Most community colleges offer some sort of distance learning courses. My advice to you is to see if your state has a virtual public high school and to check out your local community college. (If you are interested in dual enrollment, talk to your guidance office.) I hope this helps.

Question:Is there anywhere that I can get free online help with high school level chemistry? I am a 4.0 student and I got a D!! on my last chem test. My teacher isn't much help, so if there's somewhere with review that would be great - or even a help book that I can buy at Borders.

Answers:you can try online tutoring for your needs , there are so many online tutoring sites you can find them on net .

Question:I would like to enroll in a high school chemistry course. Night and weekend classes are preferable,I'm still in high school. My school is vocational not college prep so to make prerequisites I need a second lab science. Thanks in advance.

Answers:Many community colleges have such classes--for kids who didn't manage to pass high school level chemistry before entering college. So check with them. Often they have some night classes for working adults. Or ask your high school guidance counselor. There are probably others who want to take such a class, too, and the guidance counselor may know of local options. There may even be an option to do it at your school on an "independent study" basis or to take it through an online school or something....
