ABOUT US

The Armstrong Center for Community Learning (ACCL) provides personal and professional advancement opportunities as well as a variety of outreach programs and periphery services to a six-county region northeast of Pittsburgh.

Core programs provide online and in-class programs empowering learners of all levels the ability to expand their knowledge base and reach for new opportunities. We offer programs tailored to learners’ needs using PLATO Learning courses. Our on-site test center provides certificate programs ranging from high school equivalency via GED or HiSET, College Level Examination Programs (CLEP), and professional entry tests such as Compass for math skills and TEAS V for nursing.

The ACCL delivers a wide range of outreach programs. We offer Microsoft Office certification testing. We operate the Outdoor Discovery Center at Crooked Creek which offers nature and environmental educational programs for children and adults.

The ACCL is a regional resource providing educational and learning opportunities for learners of all ages.
