What our students are saying:

"I am so grateful for Adult Education because it allowed me to understand what I needed to do to achieve my goals of higher education. I would never have been able to realize my goals without the support of the faculty. I developed good study habits that have followed me into my first year of law school. It is never too late to realize your full potential."

-- Daniel Zerbo, former VSB Adult Education student
