Wake County Public School System Offers Classes for Adults
Several Wake County Public School System high schools serve as hubs for learning new skills or hobbies, improving job skills, and gaining certification for a new career for residents ages 16 and older. Through the Adult Evening Education program, students can take classes to learn about subjects such as calligraphy, cake decorating, caring for backyard chickens, couponing and using essential oils. Students can also become certified as a personal trainer, medical coder or pharmacy technician; and teachers can earn continuing education credits through this program as well.
If you have a skill you’d like you share, you can apply to be an instructor at wcpss.net (search for “adult evening education”). If you’d like to learn a skill that isn’t currently offered, you can submit suggestions.
Classes range from one session to several weeks of sessions, so costs vary. You also can find information about class availability and registration by visiting any WCPSS school or stopping by a Wake County Public Library branch to pick up a copy of the course catalog.
