Basic Education

GED students in class. Mission

Northeastern recognizes the value of every student and the importance of a quality education.  We offer adult basic education programs consisting of ESL/GED/Family Literacy.  Our committed staff creates a partnership with our students to help provide opportunities for individuals to develop skills and confidence for life. 

Who We Serve

The NJC Adult Education Program serves adults, ages 17 and older, who wish to improve their basic academic skills such as reading, writing and math; to prepare for the GED test; and/or to improve their English. The Family Literacy Program serves parents and children (ages 0-5 years old) by helping families to build literacy and language skills in order to reach their greatest potential possible. Contact Leslie Helfer at  or call 970.521.6761 for more information.
