  • Welcome to Red Clay Adult Education!




    K. Tetrick

    The James H. Groves Adult High School is committed to providing quality education services for adult learners in the Red Clay Consolidated School District, City of Wilmington, and surrounding areas. Our programs offer adults the academic opportunities to earn their high school diploma or a GED®. We also offer instruction in Adult Basic Skills (ABE), English as a Second Language (ESL), and Career and Employment preparation. Students who complete our programs create a pathway for greater achievements.


    Our graduates become more likely to gain or advance in employment, enroll in college, training programs, or join the military. Successful adult students are more equipped with skills to help their children with school work and encourage others to be lifelong learners. Adult students who are motivated, attentive, and have personal goals to achieve have come to the right place! Red Clay Adult Education teachers are experienced, skilled instructors who can help adult learners achieve their goals and plan for future endeavors. More information about the various Groves programs and registering for classes may be found on our website.


    Adult Continuing Community Education (ACCEP) courses are offered on a wide variety of subjects for self-improvement or enrichment in areas of interest. Subjects include foreign languages, technology and computers, drivers education, dance and the arts, CPR and AED training, yoga, and many others. Please see our course listing under the ACCEP tab for more information.


    We are looking forward to greeting our returning students and providing orientations for new students at registration. I am proud to be part of the Red Clay Adult Education team and to serve the adult education students in our communities.
