Name and location change for adult education, classes start next week

What has been known as the General Education Diploma, often referred to as the GED program, is now called the Adult Education/High School Equivalency program, or HSE for short. Though the program still exists to help adults earn their high school equivalency diploma, the name has changed, as well as the location of the classrooms, and the umbrella under which the program operates.
The Johnson County Adult Education/HSE program is now administered by Northeast State Community College, and no longer operates under our local Johnson County K-12 schools, as the decision was made not to apply for the district one adult education grant. Because of these changes, the Johnson County Adult Education/HSE program had to move locations from the long-time and very familiar old Shouns Elementary School building on Highway 421, to the new classroom facility at 372 Cold Springs Road, located behind the Department of Human and Child Services.
Johnson County Government and the Town of Mountain City have worked hard to help provide this new facility for the benefit of all our citizens in need of a high school equivalency diploma, and the Adult Education/HSE staff is very appreciative and grateful.
With both day and night classes starting on August 22nd, the Johnson County Adult Education/HSE program is working hard to ensure that all those in need or want of their high school equivalency diploma has access to that opportunity.  With current statistics showing an average of $10,000 more in annual earnings for those with a high school diploma, compared to those without one, there’s no better time than now to stop in or call.
Day classes will be held every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and night classes will be held on Monday and Thursday evenings, with orientation and placement testing on Thursdays.  Call (844) 637-5697 for information and to register.
