Adult Ed

Welcome to the Adult Education page for the Wilbur H. Palmer CTE Center at Alvirne High School. Community is what we're all about. Periodically throughout the school year, we run a variety of fun, educational, not for credit classes we hope you're interested in taking. Classes are taught by our teachers, staff or community members who have a talent, skill or passion in a specified area. If we're accepting registrations, you'll find that information on this page. If you have an idea for a class you'd like to teach, please contact Teach.

Our website platform has changed since last year so we are still working on many aspects, including the online registration form. The winter session in January 2019 will be the first try, please be patient while we work out any kinks.

We hope to see you soon!
