Adult Basic Education

Gateway’s Adult Basic Education program serves more than 2,000 students per year, ranging in age from 17* to 75. Students brush up on math, reading and writing skills to become more marketable in their career and earn a GED or HSED to move ahead in their life. Wisconsin residents can enroll in this program free of charge but must attend an orientation before participating in a program or service. 

ABE programs are offered on each campus Learning Success Center. Each site is equipped with certified instructors to help you succeed no matter your educational/career goal.  The center also provides computers, learning software, internet access and instructions for basic computer operations.

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.
