    Welcome to the first monthly installment of the Caribou Adult Education Corner. Our goal is to inform you, the reader, of the exciting happenings and various educational opportunities adult education offers.  Our purpose is to serve the adult population in meeting their education goals.
Fall Open House
    The newest happening is the first annual Caribou Adult Education Fall Open House on Wednesday, August 20, 2008 from 2:00-7:00pm at the Caribou Learning Center Gymnasium located at 75 Bennett Drive.  The open house will feature displays from programs such as high school completion, GED, English as a Second Language (ESL), Literacy Volunteers, Basic Adult Literacy, College Transitions, PLATO Learning Labs, enrichment classes such as quilting, EMT, Certified Nurse Assistant, CNA Med, Personal Support Specialist, and college classes offered via ITV.
