Adult Basic Education (ABE)

Adult Basic Education (ABE) instruction uses College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education and TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education) competencies

as the basis for instruction in an adult learners’ pathway to college, career or better citizenship.

Adult Secondary Education (ASE)

Diploma Completion

This program provides an opportunity for students who did not finish high school to return as adults and complete a Manhattan High School diploma.  Each student is placed on an independent course of study specifically designed to help the student complete necessary coursework in a certain time frame. Minor students are still held to compulsory attendance requirements.

Adult Secondary Education (GED)   

GED Preparation         

The GED program has become a significant means for

adults to acquire a high school equivalency diploma.  GED Tests cover Language Arts reading and writing skills, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics.  Classes blend College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education and TABE competencies with GED preparation on three student identified pathways to prepare students for college, career or better citizenship.
