Learn Where You Live!


We’re located at Scarborough High School and are part of Scarborough Public Schools.

Scarborough Adult Learning Center is one of Maine’s 80+ local adult education programs. From Fort Kent to Kittery and everywhere in between, our programs offer hundreds of classes including those in adult academics, ELL, vocational skills training, fun personal enrichment workshops, and safety….we can also help you finish your high school credential, attend college, and more. 

During these challenging times, we remain committed to serving you! Our ELL classes will continue through the summer in their new online format. We’re still offering online HiSET Academy and HiSET testing by appointment. We’re working diligently to develop digital versions of CNA, Medical Assistant, and other health career certifications. And we’re collaborating with our fellow Cumberland County adult ed programs to offer adult college transitioning opportunities this summer (Success in College classes, Accuplacer Prep, etc.). Finally, online enrichment programs are being coordinated, with anticipated start dates in October, in the event that we’re unable to offer face-to-face classes here at the high school. As programs are revised, transformed, and finalized to better suit your needs during these changing times – we’ll list them here, and in our upcoming Fall 2020 catalog. Stay tuned!

Make this the year you get your high school, HiSET or college degree…join a cooking class,  learn to play guitar, upgrade your skills to change jobs…join a mindfulness art or craft class, meet new people, become certified as a CNA or CRMA…attend an ELL class if you’re joining us from another nation…reinvigorate a long lost skill or passion, or get inspired to explore something totally new!

Whatever new skill or life change you’re dreaming of, there’s a good chance your local Maine adult education program can help you get there! Check out a few upcoming classes below:
