Adult Literacy Program

English language training is critical for the job success and community participation of non-native English speakers. As a community, we need to continue to support programs such as those offered in adult literacy though the Rochester Public Schools. In addition to adult basic education for native speakers of English, G.E.D. preparation, and diploma opportunities for adults, a variety of English language training classes are available. 

     The English program provides seven sequential levels of instruction in the English language and U.S. Culture. The classes are open to all non-native speakers of English in the Rochester area. In addition, the following programs are also available: 

  • Assistance for foreign-born residents preparing for the U.S. Citizenship Exam, 
  • Refugee tutoring assistance
  • Work skills program
  • Parenting classes and preschool education for speakers of other languages. 

Classes are offered in several locations, including the Rochester Community and Technical College Heintz Center, Ability Building Center, Corrections Department and on-site employer customized educational assistance through the Work Skills Project.
