Adult Learning Spotlight: Iowa Central Community College

The Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) Program at Iowa Central Community College began in 1967 with the mission of assisting adults 16 years or older to become literate, to obtain knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency, and to complete secondary school education. The program is funded by the federal government under the Workforce Investment Act, state government, and Iowa Central Community College. Classes are offered at no cost to adult students for the High School Equivalency Diploma, basic education and literacy, and English language learning.

Classes are offered at the three Iowa Central locations in Fort Dodge, Storm Lake, and Webster City and in Jefferson for High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED) preparation and English Language Learning. Classrooms have been updated with new computers and computer labs providing access to additional online learning such as I-pathways, an HSED study program, and Rosetta Stone online learning for English proficiency.

For more information on class locations and new student orientations please check the Iowa Central website or contact Ann Waynar at or 515-574-1959.
