Program Overview

The Adult Basic Education (ABE) Program is designed for lower performing students, who struggle with basic reading & math skills at the K-4th grade level. This is a one-to-one learning experience. Each student is paired with a tutor, opposed to a large classroom setting. Through weekly created Individualized Lesson Plans aligned to Michigan's Curriculum Frame Work for Adult Education, students work at their own pace though guided grade level course work. Daily computer base assignments are also integrated to reinforce the learning of course content.

Course Objective: While providing students with the basic skills to assist their children, this program also provides basic workforce reading, writing, and math skills. Our goal is to not only prepare students to possess basic skills for day to day living, but to also become successful employees in the workplace.

Course Learning Objectives:

•Reading Comprehension







•Reading Graphs and Charts

•Understanding Whole Numbers

•Solving Word Problems

Mission Statement

The Center for Higher Educational Achievement is committed to community and personal development by providing programs and environments which nurture individuals and families.

Hours of operation: Prescheduled hours

Cost info: Free for any Michigan resident over the age of 25.
