Adult Literacy Programs

Our literacy programs provide additional support by pairing adult students with tutors in the community. Tutors work with adult learners to develop core literacy skills required to progress through the High School Equivalency (HSE) program (formerly called GED). Our English Language Learners (ELL) program uses an online program, along with class instruction, tutoring, and mentoring. The online program includes instruction to improve standard and workplace English language skills. The goal of the ELL program is to increase skills to the level needed to enroll in the HSE program and to pursue an industry-recognized credential or post-secondary degree.

Student Pathways

Career Quest, a two-day event held each year in April to give local seventh-graders an up-close-and-personal look at Elkhart County career opportunities, is always in need of volunteers from the community. Volunteers will help guide and direct students from station to station in a large exhibit space as they visit different demonstration areas and learn about a wide variety of jobs in different sectors from information technology (IT) to health care and manufacturing.
