Skill UP Mississippi

Earning a High School Equivalency Diploma (HSE) changes the trajectory of a person’s life and the Mississippi Community College Board (MCCB) Office of Adult Education (OAE) is working to transform the lives of thousands of Mississippians each year.

We worked with the OAE to develop an umbrella brand to promote the educational and career advancement opportunities offered by the agency. Together, we launched the Skill UP Mississippi brand to focus on highlighting the myriad services and educational offerings available for people to earn a high school diploma or gain the job skills necessary to start a rewarding career.


Skill UP helps current and potential employees acquire the skills companies need to be successful now and well into the future in an increasingly competitive global economy. Skill UP’s certificate and credentials programs help Mississippians gain both soft and hard skills that help employers streamline hiring, training, and promotion. Programs like Smart Start can give employers the confidence that candidates have the technical and social skills they need to help businesses grow.
