Adult Basic Education

Reach your educational goals!

Adult Basic Education (ABE) is a state-wide system that serves adults who are working towards a high school credential, learning English, improving basic skills such as literacy and math, and/or preparing for post-secondary education or employment. 

The mission of ABE in Minnesota is to provide adults with educational opportunities to acquire and improve the literacy skills needed to become self-sufficient and to participate effectively as productive workers, family members, and citizens. 


To be eligible for ABE, an individual must be:

  • age 17 or older and not enrolled in or required to be enrolled in any school in the K-12 system, 

And must meet one or both of the following criteria:

  • lacks a secondary (high school) credential
  • functions below the 12th grade level in any of the basic academic areas including reading, math, and ability to read, write and understand English.
