About Us

The AEL program is staffed with caring, patient, and knowledgeable individuals who enjoy helping students reach their short-term and long-range goals.

We provide an initial intake, administer the appropriate level Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) test, create an individualized learning plan, and administer the appropriate post-test (TABE/Official HiSET® Practice Test) to the learner. We offer group classes and one-on-one instruction in reading, math, and writing. These services are free.
