The Learning for ALL’s mission is carried out via three main programs:
- The ABE program is designed to help adults strengthen their skills in reading and mathematics. These courses are for students who aren’t quite ready to begin GED preparation or have already completed high school and just need skill reinforcement. Course levels offered include Basic, Beginner and Intermediate levels.
- ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL)
- The ESL program is for non-native English speakers and designed with a focus on conversation and grammar. Additional courses focusing on reading and writing are also available. Students are assessed on conversational ability as well as reading. All levels of English language learners are welcome.
- GENERAL EDUCATION DIPLOMA (GED)
- The GED program is for students who are working towards completion of their high school equivalency. Course of study includes all four core subjects (Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies) as well as critical thinking and problem solving. Students are assessed prior to program placement and are given and individualized education plan.
We deliver our programs with the following methods.
For both Native and Non-English speakers. We orient and train volunteers to work with students for a minimum of one hour each week. The student/instructor pair may meet at the Learning for ALL main campus or off-site at a public place.
Small Group Instruction
Small group instruction consists of classes designed to meet the learner’s needs. The classes are interactive and utilize hands on instruction. The classes are kept small so students receive individualized attention.
