Adult Basic EducationThe Adult Basic Education program often referred to as ABE, is designed to help individuals improve their literacy skills in reading, language arts, and mathematics. Classes operate countywide during day and evening hours and are located at six adult education centers, two postsecondary career training centers, and numerous off-campus locations. Enrollment is open entry and allows students to begin instruction conveniently at any time. Upon intake, students are given assessment tests to help with proper placement and instruction. Most classrooms use computer-aided instruction as well as textbooks. Instruction is individualized allowing students to progress at their own pace and not compete with others in the class. For class times and more information, contact the adult education center of your choice.
