The Center for Adult Learning in Louisiana would like to thank you for visiting our website. After 5 years of operating, we are happy to report that we have been successful in educating Louisiana’s adult residents. With over 300 graduates, our small program has evolved to serve a broad category of adult learners through online and fast-track programs. We have been lucky to work with some of the most influential and progressive educators in the state.
To those of you who are not potential adult students, we hope that you will keep us in mind for the new year. A large majority of the working adults in this state lack a college degree. You may work with them, they may be friends or family. Our purpose is to serve them, but they may not know we exist. Forward this website to them, or just tell them that someone out there is ready to serve their needs. One problem that adults often have is the doubt that college CAN serve them effectively. And while that may have been the case 10 years ago, the online environment allows for flexibility and access that far surpasses older forms of education. With our fully accredited and nationally recognized state institutions, adults can get a cost effective degree on THEIR time. The cost of a degree from a Louisiana institutions is a better value than a for-profit enterprise.
For potential adult students, we can assure you that we have advisers and staff ready to help you at any CALL campus. With our broad range of programs, we believe we can serve your needs quickly. Think about the New Year, if you have been debating on whether or not to enter college again, think about your needs first. Then, if you still want to, but remain a little unsure, take one of our assessments to get an idea on your online learning readiness. But we believe, especially if you have found this blog and website, that you are ready, or that we can get you there very quickly. No longer do you have to doubt a college’s ability to serve you on your time. We understand that you might have children, a full-time job, older parents to care for, or any number of other constraints on your time. We know that we can help you work around those issues and earn your degree.
How important is a degree in today’s world? Unemployment is lower in the population with degrees. And they often make a higher salary and report more happiness. Those are the simple statistics that we can point to. But what stands in the way: your time. Making time for school can be difficult, but we have learned to meet you halfway with online learning. If you want to take your courses after 10pm at night, we can do that. If you need a bigger window to take a test, we can do that too. Most importantly, trust us to put your needs first.
Browse our site and our blogs, and find the information that you need. We can point you to some outside resources, that may help you decide.
