myPlace locations across Philadelphia help adults earn high school diplomas and get ready for the workplace.

As the summer comes to an end and the school year starts, are you thinking about going back to school? If you are looking to take classes to earn your high school diploma, GED, or an equivalent, brush up on your math and reading skills, or take English language classes—start through myPLACE!

The Office of Children and Family Services supports the myPLACE network, which offers adult education and career readiness classes throughout Philadelphia. Free classes are available, including online options.

Starting this fall, select neighborhood libraries will serve as myPLACE adult education campuses.

How do you sign up for a class?

  1. Start by contacting the nearest myPLACE adult education campus near you. You'll be able to schedule an appointment to come in for an assessment test.
  2. After your assessment test, you will talk to a learning coach about your education goals.
  3. Lastly, your learning coach will discuss available classes and enroll you in a program that works with your schedule and needs.

Don’t delay, call a myPLACE campus today!
