Adult General Education Programs
The Adult General Education Programs at Miami-Dade County Public Schools are designed specifically to help you strengthen their foundational skills, and get you ready for a career of your choice, or to enter college. We can also prepare you to learn English as a second language, complete high school credits and earn your high school diploma, or earn your GED®. The program is required to follow the performance-based funding guidelines outlined by the Florida Department of Education (FDOE). Performance-based funding is an accountability system with a built-in incentive structure that encourages progress toward certain established goals and performance objectives with periodic measurements of progress.
AGE programs and courses of academic instruction are identified by a course number and summarized for evaluation of learning gains by Literacy Completion Points (LCPs). These LCPs are designated by letters, corresponding to specific grade-level equivalencies. Attainment of the prescribed academic or workforce readiness skills qualifies the participant for further basic or Career Technical Education, and/or employment as denoted by an LCP.
