Darlington County Adult EducationDARLINGTON, S.C. – Now serving approximately 500 students, the Darlington County Adult Education program is thriving and recently added two new instructional locations in Darlington County.

Chuck Miller, director of Adult Education, said the new additions mean interested citizens can now study through Adult Education at eight sites throughout the county.

“Through our partnership with the Darlington County Library System, Adult Education students can now earn hours toward their GED or WorkKeys credential by visiting either the Darlington, Lamar or Society Hill libraries,” Miller said. “The Darlington and Lamar branches are the two newest sites. Students can apply using our online application. We also offer weekly tutoring sessions by appointment, as well as self-paced computerized classes that are available during regular library hours.”

The online application can be found at http://www.dcsdschools.org/departments/adult_education. There are also online diploma classes available and “distance learning,” which allows students to complete the GED/WorkKeys programs from home.
