Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe that another year has passed and soon we will be celebrating the Class of 2024. Reflecting on the past year, we are grateful for all who were part of our program. Whether you took an enrichment class, earned your HiSET, or explored new career options, we feel pride in being part of your journey.

Gray-New Gloucester Adult Education has a lot to celebrate! In 2023, 14 students earned their HiSET, 16 students earned their Certified Nursing Assistant Certification, and 46 students became Certified Clinical Medical Assistants. Free Community College for 2020-2025 graduates has opened many doors. Several of our students participated in our college preparation programs and are now attending free college or a training program.

During the fall of 2023, a committee formed to develop a mission and vision for Gray-New Gloucester Adult Education, and from that, develop a strategic plan. We gathered information for this work through a community survey asking about our current programming and what the community would like to see moving forward. We thank those who completed the survey and welcome further feedback.

We hope your 2024 is off to a great start and hope that you’ll reach out if there’s anything we can do to help you reach your goals for the new year!
