• Adult Education & Literacy

    The Adult Education & Literacy (AEL) Program is located at Webster Learning Center at 1211 N. 18th Street. Phone: 816-671-4020. 

    AEL instruction is designed to expand the educational opportunities for adults and to establish programs that will enable adults to acquire basic skills necessary to function in society and allow them to secure training that will enable them to become more employable, productive and responsible citizens as well as allowing them to continue their education to at least the level of completion of secondary school. Our program offers English as a second language instruction to individuals unable to speak, read, or write the English language.

    Adults 17 years of age or older not presently enrolled in secondary school and speakers of English as a second language.

    The St. Joseph AEL Program 
    serves Andrew, Buchanan, Clinton, DeKalb & Grundy counties. In addition to the main location at Webster Learning Center, there are satellite locations in Bethany, Cameron, and Trenton.
