Career Pathways Readiness Program
Creating Pathways for Education, Career, and Life Success!
The Penta Career Center Aspire Program provides free adult education classes to eligible individuals! Aspire, a grant-funded initiative, supports adults seeking to enhance their skills for high school equivalency tests, college, or career advancement. Our program caters to diverse educational objectives: from GED® preparation to skill enhancement for apprenticeships, certificates, and various vocational training programs. We’re dedicated to assisting adults in improving their academic skills, paving the way for a brighter future.

Join us on the journey to personal and professional growth! 

Students begin the Aspire Program by registering for the program and attending orientation. During registration and orientation, students’ complete paperwork, examine their learning styles, set career and education goals, and take initial assessments to determine academic strengths and weaknesses before getting started in class. We help each student create an individualized learning plan that best fits their goals.

Aspire classes provide instruction that focuses on reading, math, writing, language, science, and social studies. During class, students also develop technology, workforce, and career readiness skills. Our instructors help student improve their skills to prepare for the next step in achieving their goals. Students who earn their high school equivalence credential by passing the GED® test exam are invited to our annual Aspire Graduation Ceremony!
