Accelerated Opportunities-Kansas (AO-K)

Salina Adult Education Center along with Salina Area Technical College have partnered to bring Accelerating Opportunity: Kansas (AO-K) to the Salina area. This means that people in the Salina area can train for a new career and earn their high school credential through GED testing at the same time. The current pathway that SAEC and SATC provide services for is the medical pathway. The best part is the State of Kansas will pay most of the costs!

The important thing about AO-K is that students have an entire support network to help with every aspect of their success.

  • At the Salina Adult Education Center, students will learn to improve adult basic skills in reading, math and writing to prepare for the GED® tests and so they have the needed skills to succeed in Salina Tech's college classes. Lessons are created specifically to be relevant to the classes students are taking at SATC.
  • At Salina Tech, those same adult education instructors will be part of the team. They will be in class with the students making sure they get any additional help needed to succeed! SATC provides advising and career counseling from the AO-K Coordinator. Students who qualify for the Accelerated Opportunity program will spend more time in technical and basic skills classes each week.
