Basic Skills and HRD Class Schedule

The purpose of the Adult Basic Education program is to provide an educational opportunity for those students in the three-county service area who did not complete their high school education or have not received their HSE or who need to improve their reading, languages or math skills. Classes are flexible; they are designed to allow for individual differences in persons who have been out of the public school system from six months to thirty years or more. Due to the varying levels of motivation, ability, available time, work habits and class commitment among the students, ABE instructors work individually with students to achieve realistic goals.
