ABS classes assist adults in learning the foundation skills (reading, writing, math, computer literacy, social studies, and science) needed to pass a high school equivalency test (HiSET® or GED® test) or to become college or work ready.

In addition, English as a Second Language classes are offered to foreign born adults who need to learn or improve their communication skills (written and oral) and/or prepare for their US citizenship exam.
