Our Programs

When a prospective student walks through our doors our goal is to provide them every opportunity for success. Our mission is to strengthen the literacy and the employability of residents of Beaufort and Jasper Counties by providing people with the skills and training to be successful in the family, workplace, and community.


Once a student registers for classes, a test is administered which determines the correct academic level. This ensures that each student is placed in the appropriate class where they will be most comfortable and most likely to succeed.



The Literacy Center offers the following programs:


Adult Basic Education

This program is designed for adults who want to improve their reading, writing and math skills. Tutoring is confidential and generally offered on a one-to-one basis. Students can meet with their tutor at one of our main learning centers or any public place that is convenient for both. The student and tutor decide where and when to meet. Computerized instruction is also available at our main learning centers.


Because each student’s needs are unique, prior to beginning classes, each student is interviewed to determine his/her skills and goals. This allows the tutor to develop an education plan which focuses instruction at what’s important to the student.



The Pre-GED program is for students who have tested above the Adult Basic Education level and are preparing to take the GED test. This program focuses on math, reading, and writing and can be one-on-one or small group, depending on students’ academic levels and areas of focus.


English for Speakers of Other Languages

The Literacy Center offers English instruction for adult students who want to improve their English language skills. Course levels range from beginning to advanced and focus on conversation, reading and writing English. Courses are designed to assist adults with day-to-day activities at home, at work and in the community.



The Literacy Center offers preparation classes for adults wishing to gain United States citizenship.


Classes are offered during day and evening hours Monday – Thursday at numerous locations.  Times and classes vary. Please call the main learning centers to get details.
