Lord Fairfax Community College received a $2.1 million funding thanks to a new grant.
The money will be used for the college’s Regional Adult Education Program.
College officials said that the funds will go towards English language, civic, and GED classes, among others.
Amy Judd, Regional Adult Education Program Manager, said they were excited when they found out they received the grant.
“We are so exited to have received a number of grants to fund the adult program,” Judd said. “These grants will allow us to continue services for adult education.”
School officials said that the average student of adult programs in Virginia comes in at a sixth grade-reading level.
