Adult Education and Literacy Program
The mission of the State Fair Community College Adult Education and Literacy program is to empower individuals through education and knowledge and promote learning as a lifelong process that is necessary for living well in our changing society and workplace.
The Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) and English as a Second Language (ESL) Programs are located in the Student Success Center in the Yeater Learning Center on the Sedalia campus. Both of these programs are offered at no charge.
The SFCC AEL Program provides individualized and group instruction. Emphasis is placed on developing and improving skills, especially in preparing individuals to pass the High School Equivalency Test (GED). The AEL program is open to all individuals who desire assistance with individual language arts, reading or mathematics skills, whether contemplating further educational opportunities, preparing to enter college, or improving job placement.
Participants work with appropriate supplemental instructional materials and aids as well as computer managed and computer assisted instructional materials. This means you can work at your own pace.
|Please note: beginning Jan. 2, 2014, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) will begin using the High School Equivalency (HSE) test, developed by Education Testing Services, as its high school equivalency test. This test will replace the current GED, which expires at the end of 2013. Click TEST to read more about this change and its impact.
