Adult Literacy (Adult Basic Education)
Our introductory (beginner) literacy program builds off the fundamental work of Dr. F. C. Laubach. His teaching methods have taught millions of people to read. Our learning programs are heavily saturated with his brilliant teaching methods and concepts. By utilizing the step-by-step structured learning curriculum, we ensure that adult students will gain the literacy competencies that are necessary to navigate their everyday life. We achieve these literacy metrics by first saturating the student’s learning with essential reading comprehension skill assignments. Next, we gradually introduce more variegated problem-solving techniques. Our basic literacy program is structured to engage the adult learner, beginning with the English alphabet and then achieving satisfactory reading comprehension skills.

ESL/ESOL (specific classes designed for adult ELL’s)
Our literacy curriculum workbooks and our practical real-life application study guides are specifically designed to accommodate ESL (English as a Second Language) and ESOL (English as a Second Other Language) learners. This program is ideal for the English Language Learner (ELL) who needs help learning and navigating the English language. Our ESL curriculum is presented in an environment that stimulates and engages the ELL student through a practical approach. This technique allows the student to learn the core of the English language while implementing the life application skills needed to comprehend the English language nuances.
Our GED program prepares students for their High School exit exam. Our classes provide study materials, test-taking strategies, and practice tests. Once an adult student is successful in passing the GED prep program, then they may advance with taking the GED exam. Our generous donors and supporters provide the necessary funding for an adult to take the GED exam (subscribe as a monthly partner today).
Our family literacy classes are designed for parents who desire to have their children integrated into the learning process. The parent and child will engage in an interactive literacy curriculum appropriate for the child’s respective grade level. Adhering to the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, our program follows the position that: (1) a parent is the child’s first teacher and role model, and (2) the term “parent” refers to anyone fulfilling the responsibilities usually associated with the parenting of a child or children over a sustained period of time.
