Metro Action Commission Announces New Location and Adult Education Orientation Dates


Agency moves New Student Orientation to Main Location on First Thursdays

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Beginning in January, the Metropolitan Action Commission will begin hosting the New Student Orientation for its Adult Education Program at its main office. Previously the agency held orientation on the first Wednesdays of the month at a local community center.

New Student Orientation will now be held on the first Thursdays of each month at the agency's main office located at 800 2nd Avenue North beginning at 8:15am. The next orientation will be held on Thursday, January 8.

Metro Action provides free High School Equivalency exam classes for adults seeking their high school diploma. The agency also provides Adult Education students with weekly stipends, transportation assistance, free test preparation textbooks, materials and classroom supplies.

Income eligible adults that attend the Metro Action's Adult Education orientation will take the practice test to assess their education level during the New Student Orientation process. Students must attend the orientation prior to taking the practice test, which is held the next day.

Metro Action's High School Equivalency classes are held Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am-1:00 pm in an instructor-led environment. Students that complete the program participate in a cap and gown graduation in June and receive college preparation assistance with application costs and the agency covers the cost of textbooks for the first semester.

The orientation dates for the 2015 school year are: January 8, February 5, March 5, April 2 and May 7. For more information about the Metro Action Adult Education Program call 615-862-8860, Extension 70135.
