About Adult Education

The mission of Darby Adult Education is "to develop and promulgate appropriate adult education programs for all members of the Darby Area Community." Darby Consolidated Schools Policy Manual, Adult Education Policy (2400) History: 12/1990, 9/1992, 7/1994


Darby Adult Education is administered by Darby Public Schools and funded by student fees and an adult education mill levy. 


Student fees are calculated by classroom hour, with every hour of instruction costing $2 for regular students or $1 for students age 60 or older (senior). 


Darby Adult Education students must be 18 years of age to participate in Darby Adult Education courses.  However, home-schooled individuals who are 16 – 18 year olds are eligible for secondary school subsidies or adult education subsidies, but not both.  A home-schooled student must be at least 16 years of age and not enrolled in public high school to participate in adult education services. 


The GED program falls within the budget of Darby Adult Education, but it is administered separately.  For more information about GED, please call (406) 363-2900. 


Darby Adult Education offers two semesters of courses annually; a fall semester running September through December and a spring semester going from January through June.
