PALS (Program of Adult Literacy Services) Resource Guide: START HERE

Which appointment would you like to make today?

Our current enrollment is now closed for fall classes.
Our next set of classes will begin January 2022!  

NOTE: All potential students should be at least 19 years old.

The first step is to find the right FREE class for you! Placement take about three hours, and several things happen at your appointment:

  1. You will fill out paperwork with your contact information.
  2. You will take a placement test to see what class is best for you. Don’t worry! This is only to see what class you need, so there is no failing!
  3. You will meet with a specialist to go over your choices and officially register for your FREE classes.

Please make prior arrangements for childcare, as children are not permitted in the Academic Testing Center.

Learn English

Adult Education & High School Diplomas

NOTE: All potential students should be at least 19 years old.

If you have children, this may be the location for you! 
Our classes at the Washington County Family Center are open to parents age 19 and older who have children under the age of 16. Children ages 0-3 may be eligible for free childcare during class. Families learn together, and our PALS team offers classes for those who need a high school diploma and those who want to learn English.

For more information and to schedule an intake appointment, please email Lynda or call 240-500-2210.
