Assisting low literate adults is the foundation of Literacy Forsyth. We work with adults, aged 18 and over, in our Reading Horizons Elevate curriculum to increase reading skills, comprehension and grammar. Many adult students struggle with every day tasks due to low literacy, including reading over the counter medications for proper dosage, understanding forms and credit card offers, or navigating to find a sign for local businesses.

Literacy Forsyth offers adult reading programs during daytime hours at our Education Center and in the evenings and on weekends with one on one tutors. Many adults who are faced with the challenge of reading are reluctant to enroll in programs. Our emerging readers meet in small groups or one on one as needed to ensure the success of the student.
