Adult Basic Education

The Adult Basic Education (ABE) Program is designed to develop and improve a person’s mastery of basic skills in reading, writing, math, speaking, and emphasis on critical thinking skills. Adult participants should improve their ability to benefit from occupational training, have greater opportunities for more productive and profitable employment, and meet objectives for enrolling in the program.

Adults, 18 years of age or older, with less than an eighth grade education who are assessed as performing less than high school level of proficiency in reading, math, or language skills may enroll in the Adult Basic Education (ABE) program. Classes are available at each of Vance-Granville Community College’s campuses, both day and evening and at other sites located throughout the college’s service area. Students entering ABE are assessed to determine areas of strengths or weaknesses. Instructors work individually with students in goal planning the most effective study program. Students study in a classroom setting in Adult Basic Education classes.

Adults with intellectual disabilities are served in all the programs dependent upon their assessment scores.
