Inspired By Excellence & Innovation

We offer a wide range of high quality of teaching and flexible learning options.

Having such a rich history of implementing and delivering services to variety of diverse populations with high risk barriers; led WDS to form an alliance with Healthy East Chicago (HEC) in 2020 to launch a new program called Adult Learning Cooperative (ALC). As a result of this collaboration, The Adult Learning Cooperative was awarded a grant from the State of Indiana for Indiana Adult Education to address the performance measures for:

  • High school education/GED attainment
  • Career Guidance/Employment

We offer programs specifically designed to assist applicants as they navigate through barriers and transition their future onto a positive pathway. Our HSE Test Prep (Examination) and Post-Secondary Opportunities Program was designed to provide all applications with the opportunity to complete the High School Equivalency Exam in order to receive a High School Diploma and to pursue post-secondary opportunities such entry-level occupational certification programs, job placement; or choosing a college academic program. Currently we have two locations where we offer this program. They are:
