About Adult Education

A brighter future could be just a few classes away.

As you’ve probably noticed, it’s a different world out there. The workplace has been permanently altered by ever-advancing technology. Rising in the ranks or just getting a job more often than not requires some level of education beyond high school.

Prepare for your GED

Of course, it’s never easy to shift gears and go back to school, but Butler’s Adult Education program can help. Classes are available to sharpen your skills in math, reading and critical thinking. If you need to take the GED exam, we can take you through a customized plan to strengthen your knowledge of the areas that are most challenging for you. We can also conduct your GED exam on either our El Dorado or Andover campuses by appointment.

Pathways to technical jobs or college

You may be interested in getting technical training to pursue job or advancement opportunities in a variety of manufacturing or technology related fields. Working in partnership with organizations like the Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas and the Mid-Kansas Community Action Program, Butler has developed career pathways that equip you with the skills that are in demand among area employers.

Many students who attend our classes are interested in pursuing a college degree. If you have been out of school for some time, Adult Education is a great way to sharpen your study skills in preparation for college. We can also help you identify areas that you need to work on through placement testing.

There are even classes for students who just want to improve in some skill areas that will enrich your life, like Personal Finance and Technology Made Easy.

Getting started is easy.

Adult Education classes start every five weeks and are offered at our campuses in El Dorado and Andover as well as a number of extension sites. So the chances are good that you can find a location convenient to you. At our El Dorado and Andover campuses, we offer a Jumpstart program that lets you begin taking classes the day you are ready without having to wait for the next session to begin.

To reserve a seat at one of our Orientation Sessions, just call us at 316.323.6074. It’s just that easy to get started on the training you need to transform your future.
