Adult Basic Education


At Central Minnesota Adult Basic Education we help adults to become fully participating, self-sufficient members of our society.

If you or someone you know is looking to improve basic reading, writing, or math skills, earn a General Education Diploma (GED), improve English language skills (ESL), or learn more about parenting, we can help. We offer a flexible schedule of classes designed to fit the lives of busy adults. Support services are also available to help learners participate in classes and programs.

Some of these include:

  • Basic Computer Skills Classes
  • Transitions
  • Job Searches
  • Career Exploration

Our experienced and talented staff of professionals include licensed teachers, social workers, paraprofessionals, support staff, volunteer tutors, and others. We are here to support you achieve your goals. If you are at least 16 years of age and not currently enrolled in a regular school program, please call us at 320-529-6500, ext. 6211, or e-mail us at

Students are asked to pay a one-time $20.00 fee to help cover the cost of purchasing books and other instructional materials.
