AEC is a program designed for individuals 16 years of age and older who have withdrawn from public school and want assistance to prepare for the GED® Test. We also serve adults who have graduated but still have a desire to upgrade their basic skills. Tuition is free and most learning materials are provided. The AEC allows students to progress at their own pace. The program offers small group instruction to achieve goals set for each individual student.
