Children reading in the Literacy Center.

Literacy Center

The University of South Alabama Literacy Center is a community engagement program hosted by the College of Education and Professional Studies. Located at University Commons, the Literacy Center provides children in the local community opportunities to enhance their reading and writing skills through individual and group tutoring sessions. The center also hosts a fun, interactive literacy and video production summer camp held each year in June.

"There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all." –Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, tutoring services have been moved online. The Literacy Center is now offering summer online reading and writing tutoring for K-12 students.


USA Literacy Center Makes Impact in Local Community
"Mrs. Holland at the USA Literacy Center is wonderful. She worked with Jackson, and almost right away, his grades dramatically improved. 
I can actually see it in real time. She has such a love for education and for children. You can just feel it. It’s almost tangible. She has a passion for really wanting the children to grasp the concepts."
