Wings – Adult Education

What makes you strong?

At Meredith, we know strength has little to do with age – and everything to do with determination. And while it’s never too late to achieve your goals, even the strongest woman can use a little help to reach her full potential.

And as a Wings student, you’ll receive the direction and challenges you need to help you soar. So whether you’re seeking your first college degree or pursuing your next career, Wings at Meredith will make you even stronger.
