The philosophy of the KC Adult Education & Literacy Program:

Everyone deserves an education. We believe that we must provide the educational opportunities that will equip adults to function independently in the roles they are required to play in the home, in the community, and in the workplace in an English literate society.

The program's mission:

The Program's Mission is to meet all adult students where they are in their learning and to lead and assist them to where they want to be.

The Kilgore College Adult Education & Literacy Program is a service of Kilgore College provided through a series of grants distributed by Texas Education Agency Division of Adult and Community Education.

Kilgore College offers tuition-free adult education and literacy classes ranging from remedial to twelfth-grade level instructions, as well as English as a Second Language (ESL) at basic and advanced levels. These classes are held in a number of different locations throughout the area. These non-credit classes include preparation for the Test of General Education Development (GED), improvement of reading, writing, and math skills, pre-employment skills, preparation for entrance into college, and the overall enhancement of life skills.


Is usually held once per month, typically at the beginning of the month. Classes are held continuous year around or follow the public school calendar. For exact enrollment dates call the Adult Education & Literacy Office at (903) 236-2004 or (903) 753-2642 ext. 2004.

Duration of classes:

All adult education and literacy classes are self-paced so students remain in the classes until test results indicate that they have reached a level of competency to attain their stated goal. This may take from one month to a number of years depending on the functional level at entry, the rate the student learns, and of course the student’s goal.

Age requirement:

Adult education and literacy classes are targeted for adults who are eighteen or older. All newly registering students must bring a government issued photo ID or some other official document showing proof of age (18 or older).
