What to Know About GED & ABE

GED Program
 

The ABE/ASE (Adult Basic Education/Adult Secondary Education) program can help you improve your reading, writing and math skills. We have three levels of classes, based on reading scores from the TABE (The Test of Adult Basic Education).  We have classes in the morning and the evening at various locations throughout the community plus an online offering. GED testing is offered at the Regional Office of Education.
