SOUTH HOLLAND | South Suburban College’s Division of Adult Education is offering a wide range of opportunities for adults to build the basic skills required for success.

Adult Basic Education, or ABE, helps men and women whose skill levels are below the ninth grade. ABE students improve their skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. Many adults choose to further build on these skills and pursue a high school education through the High School Equivalency program. The HSE program will develop the skills required to pass the GED exams. Studies will include reasoning through language arts, social studies, science, mathematics, and the U.S. and Illinois Constitutions. Additionally, English as a Second Language allows nonnative students to improve their English skills from beginning to advanced levels.

Most of the Adult Education programs are offered both full- and part-time at the main campus in South Holland or the Oak Forest Center. At the time of registration, all students will take a placement test. The registration and testing days are starting up the third week of April.
