Mission

The Bismarck Adult Learning Center (ALC) provides services to assist individuals to improve academic abilities, enter employment or post secondary training, retain employment, and improve life skills. Services are available to anyone 16 or older who lacks basic academic skills or a high school diploma.

The ALC also provides services to meet the needs of displaced homemakers, English Language Learners, injured workers, and others in academic need.

Most services provided by the ALC are free to eligible North Dakota residents from Region VII.

Class hours are flexible with morning, afternoon, evening, and online classes available to meet student needs.
