Here is how to get started with myPLACE in three easy steps:
1. Call the nearest myPLACE adult education campus to you.
During this call you will schedule an appointment to come in for an assessment test so you can be placed in a class that isn’t too easy or too difficult for you.
2. Talk to a learning coach about your education goals.
After your assessment test, you will speak with a learning coach about what you wish to learn and get out of taking a class so we can find the right class for you.
3. Enroll in the right class for your schedule and needs.
After learning about your goals, we will discuss available classes, and enroll you in a
class that works with your availability and needs.
