In response to the coronavirus outbreak, LCCC Aspire continues to take action to keep our Aspire GED and ESOL students and staff safe and healthy while also ensuring quality instruction and learning opportunities to all.  To reduce exposure, effective Friday. March 13, LCCC Aspire has suspended all Orientations and face-to-face GED Prep and ESOL classes at all locations.


Current Students

Beginning Monday March 16, all instruction will be delivered through our on-line tools, PLATO and Burlington English. 

Tutoring originally planned for the week of March 16 has been suspended until further notice.  

All current students have access to the PLATO and Burlington English on-line learning systems, and we strongly encourage students to continue working at home through these systems. Students can communicate with their instructors and program staff via email.  (See below for a complete list.)
