Basic Skills and GED Preparation

Our classes are designed to assess our learner’s basic skills. ABS Classes are for students who do not have a high school diploma and need to review and improve basic reading, math, and language skills. Anyone who needs to upgrade reading and math skills can benefit from this service. A pre-test will help you assess your current skills and will identify specific areas where you can improve those skills to make you more employable. Because the program is individualized, the length of preparation depends on each student’s abilities and starting level, attendance, and motivation.
