Registration & Pre-Class Assignments.

Adult Education’s accelerated classes meet one night per week for eight weeks.

From Our Alumni

"What would I tell today's students about business? I would tell them that rather than competing they should be creating. Open your minds and think the unthinkable and then make your goods or services become a unique reality for your customers.  Do something different than everyone else is doing.  Create!"
