Located on the F.E. DuBose Campus of Central Carolina Technical College in Manning, Clarendon County Adult Education serves the community and local school districts with a variety of programs. We have two satellite locations in Summerton at the Clarendon School District One Community Center and in Turbeville at East Clarendon Middle/High School. We believe adult learners have unique needs, and we offer a platform of excellence, integrity and innovation. We provide a safe learning environment that is both structured and nurturing. Whether your goal is to improve basic skills, learn new skills, work towards a high school credential, or improve WorkKeys scores, Clarendon County Adult Education can meet your needs.
We offer all of our programs and many tests at no charge to community members!
