Adult Reading

The Adult Reading Program assists English speaking adults to improve their reading, writing, spelling, math, computer and study skills.  Preparation for the High School Equivalency (former GED test) is also a large part of our Adult Reading Program. Students are placed in a class or with a tutor depending on what fits their needs best.  Beginning in May 2017, the York County Literacy Council extends its services to become the HiSET® High School Equivalency (paper-based) test site in York County.  To register for testing or for more information about HiSET visit



The Process

A potential student must call the office to make an appointment with the adult reading coordinator. Students are registered for a free orientation and will take an initial test to determine placement in the program. Students are placed in a class (unless there is a waiting list) or with a tutor based on availability. There is no time limit for a student to participate however students must be engaged in their work, come to classes and/or tutoring on time and work within the rules of YCLC.


  • Work toward and obtain their high school equivalency diploma
  • Enter post-secondary education or professional training programs
  • Obtain employment or prepare for job advancement
  • Prepare for the written driver’s license exam or understand printed forms
  • Develop basic computer skills
  • Improve reading or math skills
  • Read to their children and help them with their schoolwork


The Program Offers…

Students may request a trained tutor for weekday one-to-one tutoring. A student may be placed in a small group tutoring session.

The class is based on Phonics Reading Horizon’s Discovering Intensive Phonics; a remedial reading program that incorporates the multi-sensory approach in its curriculum. Students attend weekday classes and have the opportunity to also participate in the online program.

GED/HiSET instruction classes are offered weekly. The GED Ready test, offered as part of the program, helps students determine their strengths and weaknesses. Instructors prepare students to succeed on exams for either the GED or the HiSET test.  In addition YCLC partners with other organizations to provide instruction for their clients to obtain their high school equivalency diploma.

Many students lack the necessary math skills to pass the Math subtest of the GED/HISET test. This class focuses on needed math skills.

YCLC’S Digital Learning Center offers educational software and online educational programs which allow our students to enhance the classroom and tutoring lessons. The Digital Learning Center is open during normal business hours. Students must make an appointment with their coordinator for their first visit to the Digital Learning Center.

To complement our foundational programs, YCLC hosts presentations that facilitate health, workplace and financial literacies. Presentations may include Credit Reports and Scores, A Balanced Budget, and Nutrition.  Workplace presentations are offered by members of the community who have expertise in areas of employment such as: manufacturing, robotics, health care, construction and service industries. These extra presentations help advance the knowledge and skills necessary to gain employment, access health and wellness information, and achieve self-sufficiency.

Shannan is now single and supporting her four children. After her marriage ended Shannan tells us, “Now this left me as single mom with no job and no way to support my children. I faced many challenges, including lack of child care so that I could work, as well as lack of job availability to me due to not having my High School Diploma. When I enrolled in the York County Literacy Council, my goal was to obtain my diploma so that I could find work. I earned it by taking the Hi-SET exams offered through them, so now I was able to look for better work and also attend college to further my education.”

Her future goals are to complete college and earn her degree in Criminal Justice as well as Psychology. She wants to be able to provide for her children and show them that no matter what struggles we face, we can overcome them. She is currently enrolled in HACC’s York Campus to pursue her Associate Degree and then will potentially transfer out to earn her Master’s Degree. Shannan received a $500 Blatner Scholarship from YCLC to help with costs of her education.

“I have spent months just to get this far which was a huge feat to overcome. My children are excited to see their mom in school! That alone made a world of difference”, says Shannan.
