The Community School Program offers an opportunity for the public school system to determine the needs of the community and provides a mechanism to meet those needs throughout the calendar year. The curriculum of the Community School Program is as wide and varied as the needs of the community it serves. Community schools provide programs that are implemented and funded by fees, tuition, grants, and donations, at community schools, at adult education centers, at satellite school locations , and at off-campus, non-public school locations throughout Miami-Dade County.
Each of the 39 Community Education Centers offer classes for individuals of all ages, skill levels and language capabilities. Students enrolling in language or computer classes have the opportunity to enhance the job skills needed to satisfy the demands of today’s world. Annually, over 100,000 people have taken advantage of these recreational, self-improvement, and educational opportunities, and if an individual or group wants to acquire a specific new skill, Miami-Dade County Public Schools can work with each to create a class that suits the needs of all interests.
