Sound Learning

We educate adults to succeed and contribute to their community.

A Journey Begins With Just One Step Forward

We make journeys throughout our lives. Some are short and others seem never-ending. Some journeys are never taken because they seem impossible to finish. Do you know someone who needs to start their journey down the path to improving their lives through basic education? We can help!

Incorporated in 1991

Our Mission

We educate adults to be equipped to succeed and contribute to the community.

Our Values

We are committed to respecting, supporting, and collaborating with the adult and youth participants in our program.

Our Vision

We see a community that takes advantage of the economic and social opportunities represented by greater levels of literacy.

Why Choose Us?

At Sound Learning, we prioritize the individual journey of each student, leveraging their unique experiences and aspirations to foster genuine growth. Our community-driven approach ensures that every learner feels supported, empowered, and on a clear path to success.

Our Programs

We individualize instruction, building on each participant’s life experiences, interests, abilities, and personal goals as they relate to their role in the family, workplace, and community

Basic Skills

Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes aim to enhance essential skills like reading, writing, math, problem solving, and communication in a learner-centered environment. Many students attend to advance their careers.


Our small group tutoring, led by trained instructors and community volunteers, focuses on English conversation, reading, and writing skills and addresses important topics for language learners like healthcare, employment, emergencies, immigration, and housing.

Open Doors Newcomer

Sound Learning, in collaboration with the Shelton School District, provides English Language Acquisition (ELA) instruction to immigrant youth ages 16 to 21 years old year round.

About Us

We were originally incorporated in 1991 as Mason County Literacy. Our 20th anniversary was marked by a new name for the organization that is appropriate to our evolving focus on the skills needed by workers, parents, and families in the 21st century.

"Great service from them that they're helping me out tremendously I've learned math that I never been able to learn and they're great people."
