We are passionate about literacy!
Our staff and teachers make you feel welcome. CLC offers a very relaxed and safe setting for learning.
Teachers and tutors understand the problems you may have when you try to read. We keep our class sizes small so that instructors can teach to varied learning styles.
CLC has many times available for classes, during the day and also at night. Classes are held twice a week for two hours each. Classes are held at many places in Oklahoma City. All of our classes are free of charge.

LEAP (Learning, Enriching, Achieving, Preparing)
LEAP focuses on literacy issues by providing on-site training to individuals through cooperative partnerships with non-profit agencies, churches, schools, and some businesses in the Oklahoma City area. The LEAP program is site-specific.
The program is designed to meet the needs of partner agencies and their clients. Our partners provide classroom space, access to some office equipment, and a liaison. LEAP is the critical link that enables the individual to learn in a familiar environment as they work towards the initial goals set with their home agency.
The LEAP program provides on-site training to individuals. All LEAP activities are taught my professional educators and supervised by CLC’s Education Program Coordinator. CLC also provides teaching materials, volunteer tutors, and coordination. Instructors are trained in phonics-based activities, which are scientifically proven to work with struggling learners.
