Adult Education at Ashland County-West Holmes Career Center

Do you work to live or live to work?

Trudging to a job that doesn't suit your strengths every day while raising a family and surviving paycheck to paycheck does not exactly fit the American dream. But what if your job brought you satisfaction, hope, and yes—the time of your life?

Create Your Plan

We help you overcome the obstacles in your life that make education possible. Is it money? You can use financial aid (available for those who qualify) for adult education programs. We can help you through it. Is it other commitments? We can help you figure out how to make your career happen while still meeting the needs of your family and your current job. 

We'll create a plan with you to help you get where you need to be.

Do the Work

Once you've applied and been accepted into a  program of your choice, it's time to put the pedal to the metal and do the work. Take classes, get out into the workforce through our externship programs, and set yourself up for success from the start.

You Own You. As a student at Ashland County-West Holmes Career Center, you are responsible for your own success. But you aren't alone. We mentor you from the very beginning all the way through program completion (and beyond) to ensure you know your potential and develop the skills you need in and out of your program to succeed.

Live Your Dream

You aren't here to tack on a degree, you are here to make your dreams a reality. Your program of choice will prepare you to find a real job, a job you can feel proud to do, a job that can help you earn more money, worry less about how to provide for yourself and your loved ones, and have more fun!

Stop living to work. Start working to live.
