Hi, Lee,

It is never too late to learn. I would suggest that you first go to your 
local school district and ask if they have any continuing education courses 
for adults.

If your school district does not have such courses, then look for a local 
community college. Call the registrar's office and ask about their continuing 
education courses or regular courses that adults can take without being 
formally admitted to the college. Most colleges have this situation. You will 
be given a placement test and a starting course will be recommended to you.  

Don't think that you don't know enough. There are courses that start with 
arithmetic on the upper grade school level and proceed through most high 
school courses.

You are to be commended for wanting to learn.  Good luck!
