Students may enroll in the program at any time and progress at their own rate. Structured classes are offered throughout the year. The Adult Learning Center provides college and GED preparation. GED testing is offered by appointment only. In addition, outreach sites are located in Grangeville, Moscow and Orofino.

Services

Students of the Adult Learning Center have the opportunity to:

  • Improve reading, writing, and/or math skills.
  • Prepare for college.
  • Learn to speak English (for non-native learners).
  • Prepare for and pass the GED and/or High School Equivalency (HSE) Certificate. Subject areas of the GED include: Reasoning through Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematical Reasoning.

The Adult Learning Center also offers an Integrated Transition and Retention Project (ITRP) for students who have scored below the current cut-off scores on the COMPASS in the content areas of math, reading, and language and whose goal is to enter the LCSC Business Technology or Technical and Industry programs. Upon successful completion of the transitional math, reading, and language classes, students will advance into credited college classes that work toward satisfying their degree requirements.
