West Adult Basic Education

We Are ABE

At WEST Adult Basic Education (ABE) sites in the west metro suburbs, caring teachers help adults with a variety of learning goals. WEST ABE is a partnership between 17 area school districts, several correctional facilities, and the Monticello Career Force Center. Teachers at dozens of nearby sites serve adult learners throughout the majority of the year. WEST ABE welcomes adults, age 17 and older, who are not currently enrolled in a regular school program.

Why Choose ABE

ABE teachers understand the unique challenges of adult learners. Materials are designed to help adult learners, and learning plans are individualized to help meet adult learners' needs. Learners study in the classroom and online. Let us help you meet your goals!
