The ABE program offers day and evening courses in English, math and GED® prep. The English and math courses begin at elementary levels and provide rigorous academic instruction for GED® preparation, college preparation, and employment. Completion of a three day ABE Orientation is required to determine appropriate placement into the program. Substantial and sustained progress is required for continued enrollment.
There is a $25 tuition fee per quarter which covers all courses taken in the ABE program. There is a tuition fee waiver available for those who qualify.
