The Family Learning Center offers parents a chance to get their GED.
The Family Learning Center is a comprehensive family literacy program for parents who have young children but who do not have a high school diploma or GED.
The Family Learning Center is free for all enrolled and helps parents who want to earn their GED but have young infants or children at home. Parents participate in adult education classes and will have access to computer supported tutorials covering all GED topics as well as some job skills training. Classes operate year-round, Monday through Friday, 8:30-3:00. Although we no longer offer onsite child care, the Family Learning Center can help parents in finding child care as needed. Family Literacy is supported at home through home visits and at the Center through parent education classes and literacy-related activities.
The purpose of the Family Learning Center is to support parents in their role as their child's first and best teacher. For parents the goal is education and employment success and for children school readiness and success . Participants are actively involved in decisions regarding curriculum and program design to ensure that the program is truly meeting family needs. The staff of qualified adult and early childhood educators and family advocates work together to support individual family goals and student success.
