OVERVIEW OF PROGRAM
The purpose of Adult Basic Education programs is to assist undereducated adults to improve the academic and communication skills related to their work and family lives.

“I guess the most important reason for me being here is to prove to myself that I can do better. There’s still a lot I need to learn and I know I can. Plus, it will be nice to tell my kids that after 31 years I finally went back to school!”
