Johnson County Adult Education (JCAE) helps individuals age 16 and older who are no longer in school gain basic skills in reading, writing, math and everyday survival. Their dedicated staff and team of volunteers help students prepare for the General Education Development (GED®) test and they work with individual students to create a personalized study plan to help them meet their educational goals.

Class sizes are small, which helps ensure students receive individualized, one-on-one attention.
