Program Information - Adult Basic Education (ABE)

The primary focus of this program is to provide instruction for adults who lack competency in reading, writing, speaking, problem solving or computation skills at a level necessary to function in society, job or family. Academic instruction is provided for students whose assessed skills are below the 9.0 grade level. Instruction is designed to help adults by:

  1. Increasing their independence;
  2. Improving their ability to benefit from occupational training;
  3. Increasing opportunities for more productive and profitable employment; and
  4. Making them better able to meet adult responsibilities.
