What is ABLE? 

To get a good job today, adults need strong academic and workforce skills. ABLE classes are for adults who want to improve math, writing and reading skills in order to find a job, prepare for training programs or for college or study for the G.E.D. Tests.

Who may enroll in ABLE classes?

Adults 19 and older may enroll. Those 16, 17 or 18 may enroll after they provide documentation of withdrawal from school to the ABLE coordinator. No children are allowed.
Classes are voluntary.
We cannot supply attendance records to courts, agencies, caseworkers, etc.

What will I study?

Most ABLE students need to learn basic math and writing skills. As students master basic skills, they will be given more advanced material. Skills are taught in a group setting and on computers. Students are given review work to complete at home.

Are there attendance requirements?

Yes. Students who enroll in ABLE classes are expected to attend classes faithfully. Students should organize transportation, child care and other duties so they can attend all classes.

How long will this take?

That depends on the student. It takes time to learn and master any skill. ABLE staff members want to help students complete their goals as quickly as possible. Most sites offer seven to eight week sessions.

How do I start?

MTC ABLE provides free classes in Marion, Upper Sandusky and Mt. Gilead. Day and evening classes are available. Students must complete ABLE orientation before they will be assigned to a class site.  To see schedules and enrollment information CLICK ON THE county PDF links   Morrow     Marion    Wyandot
