How are the Classes Run?
Most adults have been out of school for a long time and need special assistance.  The ACC is ready to provide that extra help!  Students are first tested to determine their level of knowledge and then a personal plan is put in place.

ACC offers both an open lab setting where students work at their own pace on required skill levels to meet their personal goals.  There are also group lecture classes to assist students who prefer this type of educational training.

Who Are the Teachers?
All ACC classes are taught by qualified teachers.  Most of the teachers hold a State of Florida Teaching Certificate and a few hold a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in another field (such as law, business, finance, or health) and are qualified to teach adult
students.
