Adult Education at Huntington
The Huntington Adult Education Program provides district residents with a variety of informative and entertaining classes, workshops and seminars. The program is self-sustaining and has been in existence for decades, enriching the lives of participants. Dozens courses are offered during fall and spring semesters at the high school and other district buildings. Adults have an opportunity to learn more about specific topics, gain technical and vocational skills and delve into personal interest areas including finance, arts and crafts, technology, sports and fitness, plus many others. Practical courses have even how to go about finding a mate. An auto insurance reduction class is also regularly scheduled. Full length courses last eight weeks, while seminars and workshops are of shorter duration.
There are also occupational training courses offered through Western Suffolk BOCES, including Adult Basic Education, which leads to the GED exam and English as a Second Language courses. The Huntington School Board has made a special allowance for those residents 60 years of age and over to attend any course for a fee of $15 whenever space is available (except in those classes marked limited or special fee.) Senior citizen discounts are not available on seminars and textbook and special costs, if any, still must be paid. Ideas for new courses or proposals to teach a class are accepted at any time.
