Adult Education


Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs serve students ages 16 and over who are not currently enrolled in school and who would like to improve their basic skills in reading, writing, math, listening and speaking.  ABE is designed to provide free educational opportunities leading to acquiring basic literacy, employment, postsecondary education and training along with job readiness.  The Ada Adult Learning Center offers classes designed for adult learners designed to meet these areas.  Classes at the AALC are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and a maximum number of seats are available. The AALC offers morning, afternoon and evening classes at the Ada location in addition to evening classes in Coalgate, Atoka and Davis.  You may call the Center for more information about out of county enrollment.  Enrollment is held on the first and third Mondays of each month at 9:30 am and 1:30 pm at the Glenwood Resource Center at 825 West 10th Street in Ada.  Please use the Bluff Street entrance.   Minors wishing to enroll in classes must visit the AALC and pick up a form to be completed by their parents and the last school attended before they will be permitted to enroll.

All Classes are provided free of charge.

What is a High School Equivalency (HSE) Credential?
We offer the HISET exam once a month at the AALC.  It is one of three tests U.S. states and territories use to measure high school equivalency skills.  The test is offered in both English and Spanish at our location.
