The Philip Ciarco Jr. Learning Center

Linda EmrGreetings and Welcome to the Philip Ciarco Jr. Learning Center!

Whether your goal is to enroll in college, advance your career, or begin a lifelong learning adventure, our classes are designed to help you.  If improving English is your goal, our comprehensive English as a Second Language (ESL) program takes you from the basics to college-level academic work. If your goal is to complete your high-school education, you can prepare for High School Equivalency (HSE) exam right here and take the test on site.  If your goal is to pursue an academic college program we provide classes and the services to support you on the path to earning your degree. Finally, our continuing education options are designed to prepare students for jobs in the region’s service-sector economy. The options are endless!

Our programs are designed to challenge you. My best piece of advice is to stay focused on your degree and career goals. Make an appointment today with our Job Counselor and visit our Tutoring and Language Center as early as possible in your studies. Our dedicated faculty and staff are prepared to help you every step of the way.

I hope the Philip Ciarco Jr. Learning Center will be an important part of your future. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected].
