Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes are designed for adults who are proficient in English but want to improve their reading, math, or writing skills. This course serves as a skill-building class to assist in obtaining a high school diploma or a HiSet certification (high school equivalency). It also aids students in increasing their CASAS Reading and Math scores. In addition, it serves as a preparation course and basic skills improvement for some Career and Technical Education careers, and as a review course to assist students with employment or military exams. ABE combines instructional-based learning techniques with supportive educational software such as Aztec and Lexia Core 5.
