Adult Education

DPSCD and Detroit at Work Partnership

  • The District has partnered with Detroit at Work to serve you better by providing adult education and job placement in four conveniently located career centers. The enhanced program allows you to receive job placement and other services in a one-stop-shop environment. Only one location will be open for the first quarter due to COVID-19 with limited capacity for those students who desire face-to-face instruction (West Side-Durfee Innovation Society - 2470 Collingwood, by assignment or appointment only).

    Get Started!

After you enroll you will be contacted by a Detroit at Work representative for the next steps.  As noted, the majority of classes will be online for the first quarter of the school year.

    Only one location will be open for face-to-face instruction with limited capacity for the first quarter. All other courses will be online including evening options.

    DPSCD Adult Education 

    Detroit Public Schools Community District's Adult Education Programs offer a variety of services to help adult learners continue their educational journey. We provide free classes for adult learners giving them the opportunity to upgrade academic skills, complete high school, pursue General Educational Development (GED), and much more. This year we are pleased to announce a partnership with Detroit at Work that will allow us to offer more services to our students. Adult Education has moved to Detroit at Work Career Centers and is no longer operating from the Adult Ed East and West Campus.
