Welcome to Adult Basic Education
At Central Minnesota Adult Basic Education (ABE) we help adults to become fully participating, self-sufficient members of our society. Central MN ABE is a regional partnership between 31 school districts, including St. Cloud Area School District 742. Adult learners in these communities are served at numerous learning sites during daytime and evening class hours throughout the year. Central Minnesota ABE welcomes all adults, 17 or over, who are not currently enrolled in a regular school program.
If you or someone you know is looking to improve basic reading, writing or math skills, earn a GED diploma or finish their high school credits, improve English language skills (ESL) or learn more about parenting, we can help. We offer a flexible schedule of classes designed to fit the lives of busy adults. Support services are also available to help learners participate in classes and programs.
Some of these include:
English Language Classes
Our experienced and talented staff of professionals include licensed teachers, social workers, paraprofessionals, support staff, volunteer tutors and others. We are here to help you achieve your goals. If you are at least 17 years of age and are not currently enrolled in a regular school program, please call us at 320-370-8220, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Central MN Adult Basic Education main office is located in Quarryview Education Center, 800 S. Seventh St., Waite Park, MN 56387.
