Southside Virginia News

DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — In order to meet the growing need of Danville citizens desiring a high school diploma or its equivalent, Danville’s Adult and Career Education Center (ACEC) is expanding beyond the doors of its Goode Street building.

Danville’s ACEC has been providing services to its adult population such as GED testing, GED prep classes, workforce preparation services, and English as a Second Language courses for years. In 2022, it will offer classes in seven additional locations:

  • Woodrow Wilson at 1005 North Main Street
  • Bibleway World Wide Church at 215 Grant Street
  • Glenwood Community Center at 1550 Halifax Road
  • Boys and Girls Club of the Danville Area at 123 Foster Street
  • Cardinal Village Community Center
  • Danville Adult Detention Center
  • Danville City Jail (men and women)

“Due to the pandemic and other unforeseen circumstances, many individuals cannot get to our current
location, so the expansion will allow the community to go to the closest location where they reside,” Danville Public Schools’ (DPS) Coordinator of Adult Education and Credit Recovery Dr. Antonio Hairston said. “The Adult and Career Education Center is all about removing barriers in order to help students reach
their full potential.”

The ACEC will also provide night classes for DPS high school students in need of credit recovery in order to graduate.

The ACEC also offers career training such as for obtaining a commercial driver’s license (CDL), customer service, and ServSafe courses.

For more information on the ACEC and its programs, you can call (434) 799-6471 or visit them at 141 Goode
Street in Danville.
