Learning Center at York

We are excited to announce our recent move to downtown York to bring educational opportunities to York and surrounding communities. Beyond credit and leisure learning courses, we also offer GED®/English Language Learner classes, Nursing Assistant courses and continuing education hours for Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs).

Our Learning Center offers students online learning options to our campuses, dual credit classes, student support with registration, advising, testing and much more.

We rent our classroom space to individuals or businesses needing a meeting area. If your business or organization is in need of training, ask us how we can help you customize training opportunities.

The six Learning Centers are geographically distributed across the service area to maximize the number of individuals living within a 35-mile radius from each of the centers. Each Learning Center offers credit and non-credit courses, as well as business and industry training.
