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 – 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.*
One-on-one tutoring is available in reading, writing and math.*
*Please note that due to the Covid-19 outbreak, our office location is closed to protect our students and staff. These GED courses and programs are now being held online through Zoom and Google Classroom.
**In order to participate in classes, all students must have access to reliable internet and a laptop or desktop computer with audio and video capabilities. Smartphones can be used in some classes. If you have questions about this policy, please contact our Help Desk at 610.435.0680.**
