This preparatory course is designed to meet the needs of students who would like to explore the idea of attending college or need to brush up on writing, math and/or science in preparation for enrolling in college. The program of study includes career planning, academic preparation, financial aid assistance, college planning and ACCUPLACER testing. We work in partnership with community colleges and the university system to offer high-quality, cost-effective and accessible pathways to post-secondary education for adults. Agency sponsorships or grant funded tuitions for RSU39 residentsare available for most students.
All academic courses are FREE for adult high school diploma and HiSET students!
If you are 18 years of age or older and have not yet earned your high school diploma, we can help you to become a high school graduate. We are committed to your success and will work with you every step of the way. We understand the unique needs and time constraints of working adults. Students under 18 must have permission from their high schools or districts to enroll in this program and must also meet with the ABE Coordinator and the Director of Adult Education for acceptance into the program.
Learners who already have earned their GED or HiSET can still earn a diploma and may attend free of charge. Adult high school diploma classes are offered in Caribou and Fort Fairfield. Class rosters are limited to 12 learners. Additional instruction and individualized tutoring are available in our learning labs. Materials including books and instruction are provided. Classes typically run in two or three-hour blocks – a must for adult learners who often balance work, schooling and childcare.
