Our Story

Colleton County Adult Education, currently know as Colleton Adult Learning Center (CALC) has partnered with Colleton County School District, the Office of Adult Education (OAE) and other valued partners of the SC Works system to provide educational opportunities to the adult learner in Colleton County for over 20 years.  Ms. Helen Bodison was our first adult education director followed by our first full-time director, Mrs. Lynn Jones.  Over the years CALC has awarded over 2,000 SC Ready to Work Certificates, over 500 SC High School Equivalency Diplomas and over 300 SC High School Diplomas.  We have helped thousands of Colletonians prepare for post-secondary training, education, the United States Armed Forces and employment.  We continue to work through the uncertainties of COVID-19 by strengthening our partnership with the Technical College of the Lowcountry and offering Patient Care Technician classes and Certified Nursing Assistant classes on our campus.  We are also strengthening our ability to provide remote, or virtual testing and instruction.  Our future together is bright as our motto states:  Catch your future today!
