Education Center

CAMBA’s Adult Education & Career Center offers day and evening classes to low-income individuals aged 16+ who need to improve their reading, writing, and math skills, as well as immigrants and speakers of other languages who need to develop or enhance their listening, speaking, reading, writing, and numeracy skills in English. Each year, over 1,000 U.S.-born citizens and immigrants from the Caribbean, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia, and Africa attend English or Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) preparation classes at the CAMBA Education Center.

Our programs help prepare participants to earn their high school equivalency diploma. The Center also offers computer literacy, civics classes, and counseling.

CAMBA staff connect participants to other programs as needed, including help with housing, childcare, and legal services.

CAMBA’s Education Center (CEC) is now offering distance/remote English and High School Equivalency (HSE) classes. This means you can continue to learn English and prepare for your HSE/TASC exam with the assistance of experienced CEC teachers online.
