Adult Basic Education in Minnesota

Did you know that 10% of all Minnesota High School Credentials are granted by Adult Basic Education (ABE) Programs?

Minnesota Adult Basic Education (ABE) is a state-wide system that serves approximately 65,000 adults annually. ABE students are working towards a high school credential, learning English, improving basic skills such as literacy and math, and/or preparing for post-secondary education or employment. ABE is funded with both federal and state funds, and services are delivered through a network of 43 consortia comprising all Minnesota school districts as well as other partners including the correctional system and community-based organizations.
