Adult Education

Adult Basic Education

The Adult Education Program provides Arkansas residents with the opportunity to improve their basic reading, writing, and math skills. Students may work on basic skills to improve their ACT scores, to take the Official GED Test, to improve their employability skills, to advance their workplace skills, or to gain personal satisfaction.  The core Adult Education programs are GED, WAGE, and ESL.

To be eligible for Adult Education services, students must reside in the State of Arkansas.  Students will be asked to provide proof of Arkansas ID (or other proof of residency) along with their social security card.  The Adult Education Program follows established laws, policies, and regulations.  All incoming students are evaluated and placed in classes to upgrade deficiencies. Instruction is diagnostic, prescriptive, self-paced, and individualized.

Students have access to computers and modern curriculum. Small group and individual instruction are available during the day and evening hours at no cost to participants. Classes are provided on campus and at satellite locations.

The Adult Education Department at SouthArk is ADA accessible and EEOC compliant.  Disability accommodations are provided with proper documentation and approval.  For more information, contact 870-864-7182 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
