Our Adult Literacy Programs Will Change Your Life

“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope. It is a tool for daily life in modern society. It is a bulwark against poverty, and a building block of development, an essential compliment to investments in roads, dams, clinics and factories.  Literacy is the road to human progress and the means through which every man, woman and child can realize his or her full potential.”     Kofi Annan

Step 1 - Start Here

We use a competency-based assessment system that is used nationally and is validated by the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Labor. It is available in both English and Spanish. The assessment (or pre-test) measures your skills and identifies areas you may need to improve. Whether you are coming to the CLC to learn to English, or preparing to take the HiSET, you will begin here. 


Once you take the pre-test, we will talk to you about your goals. If you need additional help, we will place you with a tutor or small class. If your pre-test informs us you are ready,  you will take your state-mandated Official Practice Test (OPT). ​


When you register for an assessment, you are agreeing to come to take a pre-test. When you click "Register NOW," you'll pay your $26 annual registration fee, choose a date and time when you can come.   ALL OF OUR SERVICES ARE FREE once you register as a student.

JOIN the CLC and we will guide you to a brighter future.
