Fall 2020 Adult Ed Programs

Watch for our Fall 2020 Adult Education program schedule to be posted soon! 

Adult Education Update

As was explained in our recent Community Update, our continuity of education plan is changing in response to Gov. Wolf’s mandate that all schools in Pennsylvania remain closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year. 

Continuity of Education is the overall goal for any educational practices that occur in the event of a prolonged school closure. This has been particularly challenging for our instructors because the key feature of our programs are the opportunities to engage in hands-on learning in our career fields. While a large part of our program instruction is hands-on, we have always stressed the importance of the classroom work and theory to support and give a basis to our technical tasks. Our instructors have been working diligently over the past weeks to continue to provide a Continuity of Education plan to continue to engage our students in this new way of learning.

All learning provided by our instructors will align with industry standards, and the program’s goals and objectives. We are committed to helping our students reach successful outcomes. We are fortunate that many of our industry certifications can be obtained online and offered during this time.

Please read this important update regarding the current school closure


On Monday, March 30th, Governor Tom Wolf announced that all Pennsylvania schools will remain closed until further notice. 

See the announcement here

Based on this new directive, Lenape Adult Education remains determined in providing a continuity of education for our students while responding to this continually evolving situation.  We appreciate the continued patience and support of our students and community partners as we work to provide educational opportunities for our students.  Thank you. 


UPDATE: Classes are suspended until April 13th, 2020 based on the most recent mandate by Governor Wolf.

All on-site classes and student activities at Lenape Adult Education will be suspended beginning Monday, March 16th until April 13 due to Governor Wolfe's mandate. We will continue to update you as we receive more information. Current students are asked to monitor their email during the next weeks. Any questions regarding adult education can be directed to Kelly Kirsch at during this time. Thank you.
