Adult Literacy & Language
The College of Southern Nevada's Adult Literacy and Language (ALL) Program (also known as Adult Basic Education) is funded through a competitive grant process administered through the State of Nevada's Department of Education. This program serves students of the Las Vegas area community who are functioning below the high school completion level with an emphasis on career and college readiness through reading, numeracy and English literacy programs.
The Adult Literacy and Language Program helps students improve their literacy levels and achieve their goals, such as:
- Earn a High School Equivalency (HSE) Certificate
- Get or keep a job
- Get off welfare
- Transfer to college or other career & technical training programs
- Learn English language, skills, understand US culture, and participate in society
- Help their children with homework so they can be successful in school
- Read and follow healthcare instructions
Currently the Adult Literacy and Language Program offers English as a Second Language classes and High School Equivalency test preparation classes.
