South Arkansas Community College's Division of Workforce and Continuing Education supports the college’s overall mission by offering ongoing learning opportunities that prepare diverse individuals for career advancement, a college education, or enriched lives through good health and personal fulfillment.
The Adult Education Program provides Arkansas residents with the opportunity to improve their basic reading, writing, and math skills. Students may work on basic skills to improve their ACT scores, to take the Official GED Test, to improve their employability skills, to advance their workplace skills, or to gain personal satisfaction. The core Adult Education Programs are GED, WAGE, and ESL.
In addition to the traditional academic and occupational education available at South Arkansas Community College, SouthArk offers a variety of classes for either non-credit or college credit to provide job skills and safety skills in the workplace. Training is offered by open enrollment class at SouthArk or by customized contract training at SouthArk or the job site. SouthArk also works with groups of people to organize and manage a training program through the college such as the Electrical and Plumbing Apprenticeship Program for non-union companies and the South Arkansas C-Stop program (a partnership of seven companies in South Arkansas).
Community Education classes, programs, seminars, workshops, and camps offer a variety of opportunities for cultural, educational, and life-enriching activities for all ages. Offered in a relaxed non-credit atmosphere at an affordable price, all activities are designed to be informative and enjoyable. Instructors are chosen for their special expertise in subjects that others may want to learn. Classes vary and may include instruction in hobbies, crafts, dance, exercise, relaxation, music, golf, art, first aid/safety, self-improvement, computer software applications, and entrepreneurship.
The Academic and Career Achievement Program (ACAP) is a custom-tailored learning program that offers students a unique post-secondary opportunity to further their formal education and become self-reliant. The conceptual framework for the program depicts four standards as cornerstones of practice: Academic Access, Career Development, Campus Inclusion, and Self-Determination. The ACAP program at South Arkansas Community College is designed for individuals who have Intellectual Disabilities (ID) or Developmental Disabilities (DD), and who can benefit from the community college experience.
