Adult Basic Education (ABE)

If you have been out of school for a number of years, or, if you had poor grades in high school, Adult Basic Education (ABE) might be the class for you. Students in ABE get a full review of the basics in reading, math, English and other subjects.

All classes are open enrollment and self-paced. You work on your own timetable. There are no grades for class assignments. At times, you will work individually on assignments while your instructor acts as a tutor, offering assistance as needed. At other times, your instructor will lead the class in lessons and activities.

Throughout your time in class, there will be periodic assessments to determine your progress. When your goal is reached in reading, math and language skills, you may move to a GED preparation class or an Adult High School class.

ABE classes are free and books will be provided for you. Classes are held on the Old Charlotte Highway Campus in Monroe, the Lockhart-Taylor Center in Wadesboro and at other locations throughout Union and Anson counties.
