Adult Basic and Secondary Education

Adult Secondary Education (ASE)Classes

Adult Education classes are offered for adult students at all academic levels. Adult Secondary Education includes basic education and GED® preparation classes that help students acquire the reading, writing, and math skills necessary to successfully complete the GED® exam. ASE Classes also integrate the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency.

As a result of Adult Secondary Education class participation, students are better equipped to:

  • Help their children in their educational development
  • Complete a secondary school education by obtaining their GED®
  • Begin post-secondary education
  • Improve career options and opportunities
