About Howard Adult Center

Howard Adult Center is the home of Georgetown County Adult Education. As a South Carolina Adult Education program, we strive to assist adults in obtaining the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency; in the completion of a secondary school education; and we assist adults who are parents to obtain the educational skills necessary to become full partners in the educational development of their children.

History of Our Building
In 1986, the Georgetown Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta erected a historical marker on the Corner of Duke and King Streets in Georgetown that reads:

After purchasing this land January 1, 1866, Georgetown Colored Academy built a school here. By 1908 the old building had been torn down and a new school built, its name changed to Howard. The elementary department moved into a new structure on Kaminski Street in 1938; the high school followed in 1949. After the 1984 graduation, predominantly black Howard merged with mostly white Winyah School to form Georgetown High School.
