The path to high school graduation can come with many roadblocks, like health issues, poverty, failing grades or a negative environment. Though graduation rates are increasing nationwide, data from the U.S. Census Bureau states that almost 12 percent of Alabama adults ages 25-64 do not have their high school diploma. A new partnership between the Alabama Community College System and the Alabama State Department of Education is working to improve that statistic.

Cardinal Arts Journal
The Cardinal Arts Journal is a student-driven publication of Gadsden State Community College.
The CAJ publishes original artwork, creative non fiction, fiction, photography, and poetry from GSCC students, faculty, and staff, as well as members of our community.
Humanities and Honors
The Gadsden State Language and Humanities department is happy to offer courses in both Spanish and German. We are living in an increasingly international world. Doctors, factory supervisors, business owners, clients, and students are frequently speaking in shared languages rather than native tongues, and flexibility in this area is a valuable job skill proven to increase success in multiple job sectors.
