Welcome to the Adult Learning Center!

The Johnson County’s Adult Learning Center (ALC) provides free small group and one-on-one tutoring services to adults (18+) in our community. Our program offers adults an opportunity to learn or improve their English language communication skills, to learn American culture, or to prepare for important tests such as the HSE test, the Indiana Driver’s test, and the US citizenship test. We also have a variety of resources available for adults who need to improve their basic literacy skills. Tutoring sessions are personalized and based on individual challenges and goals. All of our services are delivered throughout the JCPL system by a dedicated group of volunteers and ALC staff.

You can view our monthly ALC Calendar of events here.

Adult Learners

If you or someone you know could benefit from the ALC’s services, please fill out the ALC Adult Learner Form and tell us your learning needs. A staff member will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Volunteer Tutors

The ALC is dependent on faithful volunteers who are willing to dedicate their time to help teach their fellow community members. Volunteers meet with learners one hour per week either in-person or via Zoom.

At Home in Johnson County

In 2017 JCPL hosted At Home in Johnson County, an event that celebrated diversity in our county. These videos shine a cultural spotlight on three individuals, Juan, Parvathy and Hisako. Each share their story of how they came to call Johnson County home.
