Register for an assessment for programming
Register for your assessment at a date and time that is convenient for you with the staff member who can help you.
You'll pay the assessment fee at the end of registration. Everyone who comes to the Shelby Literacy Center for services receives an assessment to determine how to best help them. After the assessment, we will review the results and a plan to help with classes and tutoring, in addition to fees.
Parents/caregivers for Reading Intervention children: please fill out the information in your name, and include your child's name in the notes/memo section of registration.
All classes, private tutoring, and SLC student-only events are part of a sliding scale, based on family income. No family will be turned away for an inability to pay; area businesses provide scholarship funds for programming. These fees allow us to provide training for volunteers, paid teachers, and a high-quality curriculum.
ESOL students, we welcome you to attend one class before payment and attend community events at no cost. This is paid for by donations and community sponsorships. Please contact us for days and times that meet your needs.
