Adult Basic Education (ABE)

In addition to the career and technology classes we offer to high school students, Marion Regional Career Center also provides classes for adults our community who need a high school equivalency (HSE) diploma, and more. 

These classes are FREE and open to people ages 16 and older who are not currently enrolled in high school. (Students younger than 18 must complete an exit interview with the school they most recently attended.)

If you want to improve your math, reading, and writing skills, and complete your high school degree, this program might be a good fit for you. Perhaps you want to be able to help your children with their homework. Perhaps you're thinking about preparing for college yourself. Consider Marion Regional Career Center's ABE program, and the options it could open up for you!

What we offer:

  • High school equivalency (HSE) diploma courses
  • Language classes for English language learners (ELL)
  • Job and career preparation assistance
  • College readiness refresher courses
  • ParaPro test preparation classes
