Adult Basic Education

Gateway’s Adult Basic Education Centers (ABE) serve more than 2,000 students per year, ranging in age from 17 to 75. The center provides basic skill preparation for those looking to brush up on math, reading and writing skills to become more marketable in their career and provide those who haven’t finished high school the opportunity to purse a GED or HSED to move ahead in their life. ABE Centers are available for Wisconsin residents free of charge. All students must attend an orientation before participating in a program or service.

ABE Centers are located at each campus and some sites in the surrounding communities. Each site is equipped with certified instructors that are there to help you succeed no matter your educational/career goal.  The center also provides computers, learning software, internet access and basic computer operating instruction.

During the orientation students will be provided information to better understand the Center’s services, a personal assessment that helps instructors better understand your educational needs, an individual learning plan, basic supplies and a self-paced learning plan to meet your goals. The center also provides computer-based, self-paced tutorials as well as mini-courses and optional subject-specific group sessions.
