Programs

Adult Basic Education (ABE) is designed to develop literacy skills necessary for successful employment and citizenship. Adult Basic Education prepares students to enroll in GED® preparation courses and is available in a classroom setting or online. Trained staff members prescribe programmed learning materials that are appropriate to the student's learning level and style.

GED® preparation
is designed to prepare students to successfully pass the official GED exam, be awarded a State of Florida High School Diploma, and transition to postsecondary education and/or employment. Instructors prescribe appropriate learning materials in the academic areas of reading, math, writing, science, and social studies. Students are provided appropriate instruction as indicated by pretest results. Test taking strategies are also incorporated into the curriculum. Students under the age of 18 must meet certain academic and attendance requirements before being given an early testing waiver.

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) is designed to assist students in English acquisition skills that include speaking, listening/comprehension, reading, and writing. Courses include English language studies, civics, consumer education, cultural awareness, career planning, and personal development. All ESOL students are tested using the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) instrument to determine initial functioning level at time of admission. Instructors work with students in small and large group settings. Computer programs are also utilized in the basic instruction plan. Follow-up testing using the CASAS at prescribed levels is used to determine student progress.
