Hundreds of ways to enrich your home, work, and life

At HCC, we believe that education is a lifelong pursuit. That’s why we provide continuing education in Howard County to the community, with multiple pathways to professional, personal, and creative development through our Division of Continuing Education & Workforce Development.

Choose from adult education classes offered throughout the county, on days, evenings, and weekends, beginning weekly. Students ages 6 to 17 can build new life skills and prepare for the ACT and SAT. No grades or exams (except for licensure courses), just learning and enjoyment. Businesses can also arrange customized training for staff groups.
