Mission Statement: The Johnson County Adult and Family Literacy Program staff's goal is to empower adult learners to become self-sufficient by teaching academic skills, life skills, and employability skills that will enhance the quality of life and have a positive impact on the learner, the learner's family, the community, and the work place.
Johnson County Adult Education is a service for the citizens of Johnson County. We offer educational services to help individuals achieve educational goals. The AE program is a multi-level comprehensive program. This program serves not only those individuals who do not have a high school diploma, but also individuals who need help with basic reading and math skills. We offer GED preparation classes, one-on-one tutoring, ESOL classes, and work force development classes. Our program has a small computer lab for classroom use. Computer skills are taught so that students can operate the computerized GED program.
Johnson County AE administers the GED Official Practice Tests (OPT) to individuals who will be taking the GED test. The testing is free to adults 18 years of age or older who do not have a high school diploma, and are not currently enrolled in a high school program. This test determines if individuals are ready to take the GED test or what specific skills learners need to focus on to pass the GED test.
Classes are held at the old Shouns School Building.
