Our Program

Siena Literacy Center offers adult education services in reading, math, English as a Second Language, and digital literacy. 

 

Adult learners are matched with a personal tutor and work with them on an individual curriculum. Most tutors and learners meet at Siena or via video chat once a week for two hours to work toward goals.

 

Learners also spend time using educational software in our computer lab or from home.
