Anderson Adult Education
WELCOME!

Thank you for taking the opportunity to visit our site. The Anderson Adult Education Center serves Anderson County School Districts Three, Four and Five.

We believe that education is a lifelong process and does not end when you leave school. Please explore our site to determine if we offer the education opportunities in which you are interested.

We look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

 

We are located in the historic old North Anderson Elementary School building at 2005 North Main Street, Anderson, SC 29621.
