Adult Basic Skills


The mission of the Adult Basic Skills program is to provide a positive educational experience that enhances the lives and well-being of its students, assists with transitions to post-secondary education, and develops the skills and knowledge necessary to enter and thrive in today’s workforce.

Our department has excellent areas of study for adults 18 years of age and older who need to study, learn, or review the basic skills needed to feel confident in everyday life, work, and to be able to succeed in college or continuing education classes.

Our areas of study include the following and are taught at 4209 Old Charlotte Highway, Monroe and at Lockhart Taylor Center, Wadesboro. We also have many locations available for you throughout Union and Anson counties.

  • Adult Basic Education (pre-high school level)
  • High School Equivalency (GED®, HiSET, TASC exams)
  • Adult High School in Union County
  • Compass Education (education-based life skills classes)
  • English for Speakers of Other Languages
  • College and Career Transitions

  • The first step in enrolling is Orientation and Testing. This is done weekly in Anson County and every two weeks in Union County.
  • Sessions are held at our 4209 Old Charlotte Highway campus in Monroe and our Lockhart Taylor Center in Wadesboro for ABE, AHS and HSE.
