The Macon County Literacy Center in Oglethorpe is the site of a variety of continuing education courses through Central Georgia Technical College and the Literacy Council of Macon County.
Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) through its Adult Education Division primarily administers the general educational development (GED) for the County in accordance with Technical College System of Georgia guidelines. Services are provided services at the Center and other satellite locations in the County with the goal of helping each adult learner acquire the basic skills - reading, writing, computation, speaking, and listening - necessary to compete successfully in today's workplace, to strengthen individual character and family foundations, and to exercise full citizenship.
Both day and evening classes are available. For more information, call Dr. Teresia Dennis at 478-952-2964. Contact by Email.
The Literacy Council of Macon County (LCMC) works to assist CGTC with the promotion of GED instruction and services offered in the County. The organization supports classes in computer training, English as a second language and citizenship preparation in addition to offering programs for health, financial and family literacy.
Programs are offered during the day and evenings. For more information, contact the Literacy Council at 478-472-2777. Contact by Email.
South Georgia Technical College (SGTC) also serves Macon, Crisp, Marion, Schley, Sumter and Webster counties. Within the borders of the service delivery area, partnerships are formed with existing business and industries to create even more opportunity for community development through jobs and also to create viable opportunities for our students. Not only is SGTC involved with existing business and industry, but also, the College works with local community and economic development initiatives to create jobs and help the local communities prosper.
The Continuing Education Department at SGTC offers short-term personal and professional development courses to the general public in a wide variety of subject areas. Courses through Continuing Education are designed for quick skills training, professional development, and personal enrichment. While these courses will not lead to a college diploma or degree, they will provide you with improved skills and training that can have a positive impact on your career and personal life.
