Adult Basic Education Classes are taught as individual classes held in independent locations as well as integrated into GEDģ classes. Adult Basic Education provides reading, math, writing and English instruction for those who are functioning below a 9th grade level.
The fastest growing jobs in the 21st century will require some level of postsecondary education and obtaining basic education skills will be vital to obtaining employment. ABE classes offer the opportunity to meet those demands.
Adult Basic Education has four functioning levels: ABE Beginning Literacy, Beginning Basic, Intermediate Low, and Intermediate High. Instructors work with students at the studentís level of ability to improve the studentís educational, employability, and soft skills.
