Our small group classes, which began in 2003, continue to grow. We now offer 15 classes a week. For adults who want to learn in a small group, ABE classes help with: 

  • Sounding out words--phonics and vocabulary building



  • Reading with understanding



  • Spelling and writing



  • Life skills reading--bus maps, pill bottles, bills, etc.
