Who We Are

For nearly three decades, the South Baltimore Learning Center (SBLC) has provided a supportive, rigorous, and transformative education for adults of all ages and demographics who are eager to learn, motivated to succeed, and committed to making a difference in their lives and those of others.

Our goal is to provide adults with the most appropriate literacy course offerings, designed to suit their abilities, improve their performance, and ensure their success; in this way, by creating a positive education experience that meets each individual’s needs, we help them to: achieve personal educational goals, increase their personal self-esteem, and discover new ways to extend learning, beyond the classroom.

We offer several pathways to a high school diploma, including four academic sessions of adult basic education and GED preparation classes, and we serve as the sole provider for Baltimore City’s National External Diploma Program. Once enrolled, we encourage learners to take advantage of computer training, career pathway planning, academic counseling and tutoring services.

Today’s everyday champion is Cecilia Byrd. Achieving her Maryland High School Diploma had been on Cecilia Byrd’s mind since 1992, however, watching her son walk across the stage at Digital Harbor High School followed by her other son returning home with his high school diploma sealed the deal. Ms. Byrd had seen a flyer for South Baltimore Learning Center at her church and decided that it was time for her to be an everyday champion for herself, her family, and her community. In 2013, Ms. Byrd began classes at SBLC.

While Ms. Byrd humbly explains how SBLC staff welcomed her with an open heart making her feel welcomed and appreciated, she glosses over the good cheer she brings with her when she comes in for class and tutoring. Ms. Byrd can often be found encouraging other learners and offering words of wisdom and support when needed.

After SBLC, Ms. Byrd plans to go on to college for a business degree so that she can open her own cleaning company.
