Center for Adult Learning

Start Here. Go Anywhere.


Who We Are:

The Center for Adult Learning (CAL) at the Jacksonville Public Library serves over 500 adult students each year - providing GED preparation, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), and other adult education courses. Adult learners can gain the skills they need to enter and succeed in the workforce and/or for post-secondary education. All classes are FREE and open to adults, 18 years of age and older.

Due to COVID safety, all classes are currently being offered virtually, online.

Register to schedule a new student appointment by calling (904) 255-6135.
