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
Classes are for adults who want to attend. Staff time is given to student improvement. 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 class location.

Marion ABLE classes

ABLE classes in Marion are offered at two locations: the Goodwill Education and Training Center, 345 E Fairground St. and the Marion Technical College campus. Enrollment and class options are different for the two locations.

Goodwill Education and Training Center
Classes at this location meet in seven week sessions. Students are assessed in the first week of class to determine needs. Most students follow a curriculum of decimals, fractions, order of operations, signed numbers, and geometry. The language arts curriculum focuses on reading and writing skills used in workplace and educational settings. Students may repeat the seven week curriculum or advance to new material in the second seven week session. All lessons are appropriate for GED or Compass Test preparation. Class attendance is required.

Students enrolling at this location must attend an Information Hour prior to enrollment.

To sign up for the next Info Hour, please call 740.389.4636 x. 223 or able@mtc.edu.
