how do i start?
The first step for enrolling in Adult Education is to complete a Test for Adult Basic Education (TABE). These tests are provided free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Please come early as space is limited. You will be provided a brief orientation prior to testing where you will learn how our program works, what you can expect from us, and what we expect from you. The TABE test will take approximately two hours and will serve as a starting point to help the instructors determine areas upon which to focus.
You will attend a one-on-one advisement session to go over your TABE results and set up a schedule to attend classes that will work with your needs. As you work toward your goals by attending classes, working hard, and following through on your commitment to yourself, you will be successful in your chosen pathway.
THERE IS GREATNESS IN YOU! and our instructors and staff are dedicated to helping you SUCCEED!
