Program Overview

Trident Literacy Association was founded in 1972 and has grown to be one of the leading adult education agencies serving Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley counties. TLA's mission is to help adults reverse the cycle and impact of generational poverty and illiteracy through the acquisition of vital life skills. Our holistic approach includes basic literacy, GED, WorkKeys, Career Readiness, Digital Literacy, English as a Second Language, basic computer skills, and individual advising. One of our major goals is for our students to be better prepared for educational advancement and/or the workplace so they can increase their economic self-sufficiency and family stability. TLA's integrated instruction that aligns with the SC College and Career Ready Standards accomplishes these goals by providing individualized/small classes focusing on Career Readiness Skills, Digital Literacy, English as a Second Language, 21st century skills of problem solving, technology, and teamwork to adults age 17 and up who do not have a HS credential and/or speak English.
