Adult Education Computer Center
What is the AECC?
The AECC is a computer lab dedicated to helping students from English as a Second Language (ESL), GED® preparation, Basic Skills (ABE), and Literacy programs.

They also work individually with students to explain skills and concepts that are confusing, and help students who are new to computers gain the skills they need to use the computer programs effectively.
