Adult Basic Education (ABE)

The Adult Basic Education (ABE) program is designed for the student who has taken a long break from education and would like a refresher course that will review and focus on the basics. ABE is a non-degree program that helps strengthen skills in reading, writing, and math, to the pre-college level. If you’ve got your sights set on college, but first want to boost your academic skills then ABE is the course for you. By reviewing and focusing on the basics, students become better prepared to keep up with advanced classes. ABE can also teach students better study and learning habits, which will help them, succeed where they might have otherwise found difficulty. All classes are direct instruction and instructor led.
