Welcome to the Union Adult Learning Center
Union Public Schools believes in serving the whole community, not just students in PK-12 schools. To achieve this, Union provides free adult education classes to the community at the Union Adult Learning Center (UALC). UALC partners with Career Tech, CAP Tulsa, and other partners to provide GED and HiSET preparation classes, as well as English as a Second Language classes for those interested in furthering their education and expanding their knowledge and use of the English language.
ALL classes at UALC are available at no cost to the students. Class schedules vary with each program. Currently all classes are offered in person with limited offerings virtually. All adult classes are taught by highly experienced Oklahoma certified teachers. In addition to UALC, other class locations can be found throughout the Tulsa metro area, Claremore, Muskogee, Owasso, and Pryor.
The Union Adult Education Learning Center has created a new brochure. You may download it here.
For more than 25 years, Union Public Schools has served the community with an adult basic education program to assist adults through GED/ HiSET Preparation classes and/or English language learning for non- native English speakers. During the 2019-20 school year, Union’s Adult Basic Education (ABE) program enrolled more than 1,500 students in these classes.
Through partnerships with local workforce development offices and other community agencies, the Union Adult Learning Center (UALC) embraces the opportunity to serve students not only in Tulsa, but also in our neighboring communities of Claremore, Muskogee, Owasso, and Pryor. These partners include, but are not limited to, Community Action Project of Tulsa (CAP), Green Country Workforce, Tulsa Technology Center, Tulsa Community College, Goodwill Industries, Salvation Army, Women in Recovery, Family and Children’s Services, Rogers State University, Workforce Pryor, Muskogee Public Schools, Whirlpool Inc., TRIO, and local area churches.
The Pearson Vue Testing Center at UALC offers various certification testing for individuals including teacher certification testing and high school equivalency (HSE) testing. During the 2019-2020 school year, nearly 500 individuals earned their HSE diploma with successful completion of the GED or HiSET exam.

Adult Basic Education
Classes are provided for adults who are no longer attending high school and need basic skills instruction in reading, writing, math, and life skills.
Passing the General Educational Development (GED) or HiSET test qualifies adults to receive a high school equialency diploma issued by the State of Oklahoma and participate in our UALC graduation ceremony. Exams are available on paper or computer. We also offer certification exams for various fields such as IT, health, and education through our Pearson VUE testing center.
English as a Second Language (ESL) classes provide instruction to non-English speaking adults. Students learn communication and assimilation skills in order to be productive citizens.
Family Literacy classes offer ABE and ESL to parents along with parent/child interaction time. By learning together as a family, the program reinforces life skills that parents and children need to succeed.
These classes are designed specifically to teach ABE or ESL to employees in order to achieve high performance work and product quality. Union’s instruction staff will identify tasks important to the employer and make those tasks the focus of basic skills.
