There is a certified HSE/AEL center in Warrensburg and other areas near Warrensburg where students who are preparing to take their HSE can take pretests. Although the center will help students prepare in group settings, students who wish to work privately with tutors are referred to JCALP to help them with their Hi-Set assignments.  Go on line to register at or call 314-415-4935.

JCALP tutors can help learners as they work with the  HSE/AEL Center.

Our basic literacy program is reading and writing, using the Laubach Way to Reading series.  Once our students are able to complete this first set of books, we offer a more comprehensive program called Challenger Reading and Writing that continues with basic reading skills, but also helps the student work on building better sentences, and focuses more on reading comprehension skills. Learners move at their own rate and have individual attention throughout the tutoring process.

We offer one on one tutoring to improve conversational, reading, and writing skills.  The Laubach Way to English is the program that is used to help our Learners.  We also offer a variety of other ESL learning books, such as Step Forward ESL.  We have a series of books called Citizenship: Passing the Test to help Learners practice to take the Citizenship Test.


Basic Math Skills Tutoring

Basic Math Skills Tutoring is available for adults who are interested in improving these skills.  We use Breakthrough to Math from Pro Literacy's New Reader's Press. The students are given a screening to locate the best place to begin. The math materials cover beginning math skills and progress to geometry.
