The School District of University City Adult Education & Literacy Program (AEL) Program provides basic education to adults, ages 16 and over, so they may become productive, self-sufficient, and contributing members of society.
Our main focus is to provide programs and services in three core areas:
1. HiSET: In January, 2014, the State of Missouri switched from the GED Test to the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET), a computer based exam. We offer orientation to this new test several nights a week. Go HERE to learn more.
2. Literacy Education: Learning to read and write is essential to achieve success in the United States. Without these skills, the chances of progress and growth are quite limited. We have trained volunteer tutors who work one-on-one with individuals to improve vocabulary, comprehension, writing skills, and/or prepare for job searches. For more information, go HERE.
3. English as a Second Language: We believe in the power of words and helping individuals learn and understand the power of English words. This program is particularly important to University City's diverse and growing community, as many are likely to meet someone from another country as they travel about in the city. The focus of this program is to provide students, for whom English is not their primary language, with a working knowledge of English in preparation for citizenship tests, the workplace, additional education, and daily living. For more information, go HERE.
As you can see, we have several programs that service adults. Should you be interested in enrolling in any of them, please visit that page or contact us today for more information.
