The Schuylkill IU's Lifelong Learning Center (LLC) has existed to enhance the basic skills of adult learners. Our mission is to offer educational programs that are accessible and flexible in delivery. Programs foster values for lifelong learning, respect for diversity, and development of students as contributing members of society. Educational goals are set by individual learners and are defined by the adult learner's perceived roles as workers, family members, and community members.
FREE instruction is offered to adults who are looking to improve their basic reading, writing, math skills and English as a Second Language. The adult learner will receive valuable skills needed to succeed in the workplace or in a post-secondary/training program.

It is during the Orientation process that the adult leaner is assessed. A plan will then be developed which will provide the adult leaner with the best options in order to meet their educational needs in the timeliest manner.
