Adult Learning Center FAQs


Important information about the policies of the Adult Learning Center.

How long will I have to wait to enroll in an ALC class?”

The answer to this question depends on which class you are waiting for. The evening classes usually have longer waiting lists than morning classes. The wait for ESOL classes is usually the longest and may take a year for morning classes and longer for evening ESOL classes.

How long will it take me to get my GED?”

This depends on your skills entering the GED preparation class. Some students finish in a few months, others take a year or longer. Students who complete homework assignments and actively participate in class usually progress most quickly.

Is daycare available for ALC students?”

The Adult Learning is not able to provide daycare for students at this time. However, there is a Family Learning Program where ALC adult students attend class while their 3- and 4-year-olds attend an early childhood class offered through the Brockton Public Schools.

How much will I have to pay to attend ALC classes?”

ALC classes are provided at no cost to students. There are also no charges for use of student books, materials, and supplies required for classes.

Do I have to live in Brockton to attend the ALC?”

No. Because the Adult Learning Center is funded with both local and state funding, students from Brockton and surrounding areas are welcome to enroll.
