About the Tri-County OIC Adult Learning Center
Since 1965, Tri-County OIC Adult Learning Center has provided quality academic, vocational, workforce, and family education classes at more than 50 community, workplace and institutional sites in Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry, and York counties.
We offer programs to help our students achieve basic literacy, workplace, life, family and computer literacy skills. At OIC our students can earn their high school equivalency diploma, prepare for vocational skills training, transition into employment or enroll into higher education classes.
OIC provides academic support and barrier removal services that help students succeed in school and make the transition into continuing education and employment.
OIC's mission is to deliver high quality, learner-focused education and training services. We accomplish this by capitalizing on the experience of our staff, the support of our partners, and the resources of our community. Through education we help our students become better workers, better citizens, and better family members.
At OIC... "We train people for life."

In the Spotlight
High school offered too much drama for Anthony Russell, who dropped out because he couldn’t focus on his studies. He was doing well academically, but the distractions left him unable to do as well as he felt he could. After leaving school, Anthony joined the Jobs Corps, but only finished part of the course. Two years later, he enrolled at Tri-County OIC after hearing about it from friends. “I realized I needed to complete my high school education to get to where I wanted to be,” said Anthony, 19, about what caused him to finally get serious.
