    Welcome to NEISD Adult Education.

    Our programs have been created to improve the quality of life of it’s participants. Our goal is to provide our participants with the tools necessary to obtain a job, get a promotion or change careers.

    Our program is funded with federal and state funds; you do not pay tuition or any fees to participate in our instructional programs; however, we require your regular attendance.

    By joining our program(s), you are making a commitment, a promise to attend class on a regular basis and take required assessments.

    Carefully consider your work schedule, medical appointments, vacations, childcare and any other barriers that might keep you from attending your assigned class.

    Registration, orientation, testing and class assignments are held at Ferrari Learning Center 107 W. Rampart Drive, San Antonio, Tx. 78216.

    Classes are offered throughout the NEISD. Classes are assigned according to student’s English level and/or class availability.

    We can not guarantee that your class class will be at the Ferrari Learning Center or any other location.

    Students must be able to attend any location within the NEISD where classes are offered.  

     

     

    To be part of our program, we require the following from every student:

    • Only 65 people will be registered at every registration session on a first come-first served basis.
    • Plan to be here for about 4 hours.
    • You will complete registration and testing the same day.
