The Literacy Center (TLC) offers classes to adult Pennsylvania residents who are seeking to earn their High School Equivalency Diploma (GED /HiSET). There are many reasons why young people are unable to compete high school, including the need to work to support their families, bullying, learning disabilities, and feeling unsafe at school. The GED high school equivalency credential, which includes four separate exams – Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social Studies – provides adults with the opportunity to complete their high school education without the barrier of returning to the traditional classroom.
College Access Counseling
A College Access Counselor is available to guide adult students through the college search process. The Counselor will explain the application and admissions process and provide resources on colleges, job training programs, and financial aid. Meet with the Counselor in our new College Access Room which has materials from colleges and post-secondary institutions from across the country.
Throughout the year, representatives from regional colleges and post-secondary schools will conduct Information Sessions at TLC. These information sessions are open to the public. TLC will hold its first College Access Fair on September 26, 2019, 4pm-6pm with over twenty colleges and several informational workshops.
One-on-one tutoring is available in reading, writing and math.
