About Us

The Rockingham County Literacy Project offers free one-on-one or small-group instruction to adults in the BASIC SKILLS areas of reading, writing, English, and math.  These offerings cover a wide range depending upon the needs and literacy goals of the students.  To assess those needs, all students entering the program are tested; and a learning needs prescription is determined by an assessment specialist.  For example, some students may want to strengthen their basic skills enough to read to their children and help them with schoolwork.  Others want to prepare for the written driver's license exam or increase their comfort level with all forms of printed materials.

Basic literacy instruction for these students can include beginning reading and writing lessons, brush-up lessons, or fine tuning skills for personal or professional goal attainment.

We also offer Integrated English Language/Civics classes to teach speakers of other languages to read, write, speak, and understand English.  Also, students may learn how to become US citizens and how to function better within our society in the United States.  For more information on our IEL/Civics program, click here.

Since the summer of 2015, we offer a Health Education program free of charge.  For more information on our Health Education program, click here.
