Program Overview

The Adult Basic Education and High School Equivalency (ABE/HSE) program offers free classes to students seeking to improve their foundational skills in reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, and science. Our program provides pre-college instruction. Classes are offered both in-person and online throughout Buncombe and Madison counties.

Students can prepare to take the HiSET® or the GED® test for a high school equivalency credential. Students who wish to earn a high school diploma may take advantage of the Adult High School Program. Those students who do not need the high school credential can improve their skills to become more competitive in the workforce, to prepare for the college placement test, or to qualify for credit-bearing college classes.

We offer face-to-face classes, independent study labs, and online courses year-round.

Student and Volunteer Success Stories

"For many years I kept this journey a secret in fear of judgment and ridicule by others. Through uncontrollable failures and successes, triumphs and even tragedies, I knew that education was the way out of not only physical and financial poverty, but out of mental and emotional poverty. Growing up I never knew what it was like to sit a dinner table in the company of friends or family, but every day at the hemlock building was like coming to the dinner table. Not only did we discuss educational difficulties but also the challenges that life had to offer. Those discussions taught me that you may not be able to control every situation but you can control your attitude and how you handle it." - Michael Hewitt
