For nearly 30 years, the Adult Learning Center (ALC) has provided high-quality, learner-centered instruction to help Baltimore residents increase their academic skills, employability, and overall quality of life. Improving adult basic skills is a key component of ensuring that adult learners are productive members of the community. The ALC provides a necessary, direct service to individuals living and working in Baltimore who are experiencing low educational attainment, low-skill employment, low literacy, and low English proficiency.

The  Adult Learning Center provides classes in Adult Basic Education (ABE) and English Language Acquisition (ELA/ESL/ESOL) to Baltimore residents, all at no cost to the learner. Each year we empower over 500 adults to reach their educational, career, and personal goals.
