QCAP’s Adult Basic Education Program (ABE) gives adults the chance to return to school and get their GED, to learn English and to improve their literacy skills. Small group instruction and an individualized approach create a learning environment that is supportive and successful in assisting students to reach their academic goals. The program’s highly participatory learning process is enriched by students’ life experiences. The ABE staff is committed to providing a supportive, caring setting that focuses on students’ strengths.
QCAP ABE classes are open to any adult age 16 and older. They are free of charge. Classes meet from September through June at locations in Quincy. Students receive support to help them stay in school and complete their educational goals. ABE classes include:
