Adult Basic/Secondary GED Preparation

The Manhattan Adult Learning Center Adult Education Program provides educational opportunities to adults who are 18 years of age or older and who are officially withdrawn from high school and do not have a high school diploma or are a high school graduate and have been determined to need basic skill development in English/language arts or mathematics.

Adult Basic Education (ABE) Levels 1-4 (0-8.9 grade level) - ABE provides basic academic skills instruction in reading, writing, and math to adult learners functioning below the ninth-grade level. Students are given a placement test and the results are used to provide instruction to meet specific needs in writing skills, reading, mathematics, and workplace skills.

Adult Secondary Education (ASE) Levels 5-6 (9-12.9 grade level) - Provides academic skills instruction in reading, writing, and math to adult learners functioning at the ninth grade level or above. These classes help students to earn the GED® credential and improve career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive job market.

In Kansas, anyone who is 18 years or older, not enrolled in or graduated from high school, and who meets the state eligibility requirements, can earn a Kansas High School Diploma by passing the GED® assessment. The GED® test is a computer-based assessment that measures a student’s educational level in four subject areas: Reasoning through Language Arts (RLA), Mathematical Reasoning, Social Studies, and Science. Our center provides instruction designed to prepare the student for the GED® test using managed enrollment classes, Distance Learning (where appropriate), and independent study.

Underage students (16 & 17 year olds) must present documentation at the time of enrollment to show they are not truant and/or currently enrolled in high more

Accelerated Opportunity seeks to change the way Adult Basic Education is delivered by connecting crucial pieces of the puzzle that are preventing lower-skilled adults from entering and completing postsecondary education. By aligning and accelerating ABE, GED®, and developmental programs and providing nontraditional students the support they need, Accelerating Opportunity career pathway programs enable more low-income adults to complete postsecondary credentials that are of value in the labor market. Students are currently able to enroll in college in a technical career pathway such as Welding and Allied Health while working towards earning their General Equivalency Diploma (GED® ).
