Adult Basic Education (ABE) Classes – Orientation

October 23, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Adults who are interested in preparing for the GED® tests or improving their basic skills can do so by enrolling in Tacoma Community House’s Adult Basic Education (ABE) Classes. We are here to help students increase their skills in reading, writing, math, and computer usage. For some, earning their GED® is a goal, while others want to increase skills before entering a local community college. Many students who enroll in the program often go on to further their education or improve their employment standing.

The ABE program helps students with:

  • Basic reading, writing, math, and computer skills
  • General Educational Development (GED®) test prep
  • Skills to prepare for college, technical school, etc.
  • Work and life skills

Cost, Eligibility & Class Schedule

  • $25 per quarter
  • Open to adults 18 and older
  • Classes run Monday through Thursday in the mornings (9am-12pm)
    • Fall Quarter: October 1, 2018 – December 13, 2018
