The program is for adults, sixteen and older who have skills below a 12th grade level. Our free classes are offered at different times during the week all over Cuyahoga County.
Please note: The state is changing requirements for 16 and 17 year old students taking the Official GED® test. This means that if you enroll in ABLE at 16 or 17 years old you may not be able to reach your end goal of obtaining your high school equivalency diploma. Please review age requirements on the Ohio Department of Education website.
We are part of the University System of Ohio and are funded by Federal and State grants through the Ohio Department of Higher Education.
