The Fort Smith Adult Education Center

Our mission is to prepare students to successfully transition to higher education, career-readiness, and the workforce.

The Fort Smith Public Schools and the Adult Education Center serve the community by providing every student a comprehensive education of the highest quality in a safe and nurturing environment. We recognize the diversity of needs and aspirations of our students, and we are committed to the development of each individual as a successful, responsible, and productive citizen who is prepared for the challenges of the future.

The Fort Smith Adult Education Center offers a wide range of classes that are available to any adult over the age of 18 who is a resident of the area. Flexible class schedules provide day and evening sessions to meet the unique needs of adult learners.
We offer not only Adult Basic Education (ABE), General Adult Education (GAE), and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, but we also offer business computer classes, computer assisted instruction, conversational Spanish classes, GED preparation, the W.A.G.E. program, the Career Readiness Certificate, and more! We now also offer the COMPASS exam for the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith. If you live in Greenwood, we have a GED preparation course that meets every Monday and Wednesday night at Greenwood High School 5:00-9:00pm. Call for the room number. Parking is between this building and the Arena.
