Through AAMA’s adult literacy program, Adelante, adult learners overcome language and other barriers to success. Adelante means “to move forward” and that’s what these courses help students to – move forward to higher education, certificate training programs and better job opportunities.

Comprehensive courses and flexible schedules meet the needs of working adults, and AAMA’s Pre-Kindergarten and childcare options make learning a family affair. Classes are offered in multiple locations, with class times to meet varying schedules.

Courses are free and are open to adults 18 years of age and older.
