Gilbert Adult Learning Programs

 
GED and Adult Basic/Secondary Education
The Gilbert Adult Learning Program offers GED and Adult Basic/Secondary Education (ABSE) classes to help you prepare for the GED exam or to provide enrichment in the following areas:
  • Reading
  • Math
  • Writing
  • Social Studies
  • Science
ABSE/GED classes are designed to address the diverse educational needs of adult learners. We offer small class instruction in all five test areas and also have computer software, textbooks, and worksheets to complement your study plan.
 
When a student enters our program, standardized assessments in reading, writing and math are administered and the student's lesson path is determined. Individual assignments are made based on the results of these assessments. Students must attend registration prior to enrolling in a GED class. Classes are scheduled during the morning and evening to accommodate your schedule.
