The Adult Learning Center at Casper College offers free assistance to out-of-school adult students, 16 years old and older, who need to improve their basic reading, writing, and math skills in order to reach their educational and employment goals. Educational services are also available to speakers of other languages.

Services we provide include:
  • Adult Basic Education

  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • Volunteer Opportunities

All services are free and open to the public. (These services are state and federally funded through adult education and literacy programs administered by the Wyoming Community College Commission, BOCES, and Casper College.)

Students can work at home, in the center, or both. Those requiring intensive individualized instruction may be placed with a Literacy Volunteers of Casper tutor. More information is available online about ProLiteracy America.
