EL/Civics provides classes to the non-English speaking population. Classes are offered at three levels:
- Beginning or Conversational

Citizenship and life skills are also available. Some classes are located in local churches. All classes are free.
Family Literacy Programs
Providing opportunities for parents and children to improve their literacy skills in a positive environment. There are four components to the program:
- Adult Education --- Prepares parents in reading, math, and writing skills and GED preparation.
- Childhood Education --- Focuses on literacy skills for children with an emphasis in reading.
- Parent & Child Together --- Brings the parents and children together to help parents become the child's most important teacher.
- Parent Time --- Offers topics of interest such as life skills, coping skills, job skills and much more.
This program is offered in Houston County at Perry Primary School.
Employees play a major role in the economic development of our community. Addressing the literacy needs of employees can help improve literacy in the workplace. Middle Georgia Technical College provides a customized workplace program to improve the basic skill levels of employees. The program is designed using a functional context approach -- the skills learned are applicable to the workplace. Computer technology is a major asset in the workplace program. State tax credits are available to employers that participate in this education program.
