Considering college? The Adult Learning Center is also the home of Middlesex Community College's Links program. Links is a program designed for students who are ready to make the transition to college but would benefit from smaller class sizes, individualized support, and the opportunity to earn free college credits. Visit the Links Program page for more information.

The Adult Learning Center and Links program are funded by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education.
