Adult Basic Education and High School Equivalency

Adult Basic Education and High School Equivalency Home

Our program offers free instructional services to students seeking to improve their foundational skills in reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, and science. Many of the students in our program are preparing to take the GED® tests for a high school equivalency credential. Others do not need the high school credential, but are improving their skills to be more competitive in the workforce, to prepare for the college placement test, or to qualify for credit-bearing college classes.

Our class sessions run year-round and last for about eight weeks each. Regular attendance is required.

Registration and orientation sessions for classes lasts for about five hours, and we have those sessions scheduled one or two weeks before each class session starts.

Call (828) 398-7433 to reserve a spot in an upcoming registration and orientation session.



Classes are held at a variety of locations and online. Please note that online study still requires an in-person orientation and placement testing.
