Over 40 million adults in the U.S. cannot read above a 3rd grade level, but the Heartland Adult Education Consortium is working to change that.

We are located at the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College, in the OTB 300 building in room 310. We want to be available, because we want to find out how we can help you, and we structure your plan around what you need,” stated Heartland Adult Education Director, Diane Kelley. They offer both remote classes and one-on-one tutoring. They even offer the official GED test that can be taken in the comfort of your home.
