The Jefferson Skills U offices and class sites are currently closed and are expected to reopen Monday, April 20. If you are a current student interested in continuing your studies online or a new student who wishes to learn more about earning your GED credential or improving your English language skills, please email Beverly Hornback at for more information. While we apologize for the inconvenience this break in services may cause, our priority is the health and well-being of our students and staff. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Please take care during this time of great uncertainty, and don't hesitate to reach out via email if there is anything we can do to assist you. 

Jefferson Skills U fully supports our district's vision and mission by providing community members with the opportunity to increase their educational attainment, thereby empowering them to become stronger parents and role models.

The Adult Basic Education Program enables students to upgrade their skills, earn a General Educational Development (GED) credential, and successfully transition to postsecondary education and/or the workplace. Free morning, afternoon, and evening classes are held at sites across Jefferson County.

The English as a Second Language (ESL) Program provides free classes for non-native English speakers who desire to become more proficient in the English language.
