Adult Basic Education (ABE)

Adult Basic Education (ABE) is a competency-based work-relevant curriculum focused on basic reading, writing, speaking, problem solving, and math skills. ABE provides the foundation of basic skills needed for additional studies in AHS or HSE and transition into postsecondary and the workplace. The ABE curriculum explores ways to enhance job performance, self-esteem, critical thinking, and life skills. It is designed to provide adults with sufficient basic education to enable them to benefit from job training and retraining programs. The ABE curriculum is taught through pathway modules in health or business careers which allow students to target specific academic and employment areas in a limited amount of time.
