Aberg Center for Literacy’s mission is to build richer lives, stronger families, and better communities through programs in English fluency, Spanish and English GED preparation, early childhood education and family literacy. This is accomplished by having the adults take classes Monday-Thursday from 9-12 pm, during the school year. If the student has a preschool child, then childcare is provided during that time. The teachers follow a curriculum to help ensure that the children will be prepared for their time to attend school. The parents commit to come to school to read to their child for 30 minutes each day and attend a weekly class to learn how they can be the best educator for their child.
