  • Both options give you individualized instruction and personalized learning plan opportunities. These are not "classes" where everyone is working on the same course at the same time. The learning environment is open, learner-friendly, and designed to complement your interests and academic needs.
  • See the How to Enroll section for information on how to connect with either of these options.
  • We will be working with more ABE programs and colleges to expand college prep opportunities during the 2007-2008 school year.


You pay no tuition, fees, or book costs in either case!
