Center for Adult Learning

#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.
