Adult Basic Education Program

Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes are for adults who are already proficient in the English language, but wish to improve their basic reading, writing, and math skills. Reading and writing are integrated to give students the foundation for effective communication.
Reading instruction emphasizes comprehension, vocabulary development, critical thinking, and study skills. Writing skills include the review and application of language and grammar rules, correct usage and spelling, writing sentences and paragraphs. Students learn to use writing as a mode of personal expression, as a valuable learning tool, and as a necessary skill when getting a job, earning a living, or pursuing further education.
Math instruction includes skills development in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, and introduction to algebra and geometry.

This course is not designed to provide a High School Equivelancy Diploma; however, participants can advance to the GED program upon completion of the Adult Basic Education (ABE) program.
