Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) is a program funded by the State of Ohio through Board of Regents and the United States Department of Education. ABLE classes are available at no cost to adults who want to improve basic math and English skills in order to obtain a high school equivalency (HSE), prepare for additional training or college, or improve employment opportunities.
ABLE programs serve adults in the areas of improving basic academic skills (including reading, writing, math, and computers). Adult learners come to ABLE to:
- Take a free Compass Preparation course
- Prepare for post-secondary training and education
- Obtain a HSE (Formerly GED) diploma
- Improve employability skills
- Learn English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
Owens ABLE classes are offered in several locations, dates, and times to serve the diverse needs of area adults. Before attending the free ABLE classes, all students must complete an orientation. Schedule orientation by calling (567) 661-ABLE (2253).
ABLE also provides support services to adults planning to go on to additional education. A Student Success Mentor is assigned to each student ready to register for classes at a college or career center. The Student Success Mentor advises ABLE students on academic goals, financial aid, registration, and other resources on and off campus.
