District Departments » Adult Education / Family Literacy » WHAT WE DO


The Diboll Family Education Center is open to the public and is free. Classes are open to all Texas residents over the age of 18 years who are not currently enrolled in public school.   Residents who are 18 years of age and under must  have a parent or guardian consent and proof of school withdrawal.  Residents who are 16 may be accepted under certain conditions.
Our program helps adults qualify for college, training, or obtain a good job with good wages.  We work to transition students to Success. 
All classes require in-person registration and testing.  On the first day of class registration is completed.  A baseline assessment is completed.  This assessment is used to create a foundation  in which we customize the lessons in class and through online learning.  Once testing is completed the results will be reviewed with the student and information provided regarding attendance, class schedules, and information about other possible services we offer. 
Diboll Family Education Center is part of the (ACAEC) Angelina College Adult Education Consortium.  We are part of 11 Adult Education Classes offered in the consortium.
