Sussex Tech Adult Division and the Woodbridge School District has partnered to provide After School Programs at the Phillis Wheatley Elementary School and the Woodbridge Middle School. Primarily Hispanic and teacher-referred students stay after school every Tuesday and Thursday. After getting help with homework, the students participate in a club of their choice. Nearly one hundred students and family members came to the PWES Saturday, November 15. The families enjoyed healthy snacks, made delicious smoothies, played board games, made origami projects, played games on the iPads, and played soccer.
Funding for this 21st Century Community Learning Center program is provided by the US Department of Education and administered by the Delaware Department of Education and the Arsht Cannon Fund at the Delaware Community Foundation.

The Sussex Tech Adult Division announces the 50th Commencement Exercise of its James H. Groves Adult High School. Adult students from all over Sussex County will celebrate their high school completion on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sussex Technical High School gymnasium. U. S. Senator Chris Coons will give the Commencement Address. Please join us for this special occasion.
Classes for adult students working to earn their high school diploma are held in Bridgeville, Seaford, Laurel, Selbyville, Lewes, Ellendale and Georgetown.
The James H. Groves Adult High School is a statewide school that holds adult students to the same rigorous graduation requirements as other schools in the state. Graduate John Ball-Kinsler of Georgetown states, “I have been coming to class two nights per week for about 2 ½ years. Now, I recognize that it has all been worth it.”
Two graduates, Maria Sandoval and Jose Escalante, began in the school’s English as a Second Language program, progressed through the Adult Basic Education program, and into the James H. Groves Adult High School. They have now earned the 22 credits required to graduate. Both are excitedly anticipating marching across the stage in their cap and gown to receive their high school diploma on August 13.
“The James H. Groves Adult High School is thrilled to celebrate its 50th anniversary”, stated Dr. Michael Owens, Director of Extended Learning with Sussex Tech. We are especially pleased to have U.S. Senator Chris Coons join us for this special night.
