Frequently Asked Questions - Basic Studies

Basic Studies classes help those who may or may not have a high school diploma improve their basic math, reading and writing skills. ABE is designed to raise the level of education of adult learners so that they can benefit from further education and gain job skills.

Students who do not have a High School diploma, GED or who have lower level literacy skills in reading, writing or math may qualify for the program.

New students must call and set up an appointment for an orientation (Bremerton: 360.475.7550; Shelton 360.432.5471).

During orientation, students will take a variety of assessments to determine skill level as well as complete necessary, required paperwork and register for classes.

CASAS (Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System)  assesses student skill levels in reading and math and is used to place students into the appropriate level.

$25.00 per quarter. Classes may be available at no cost. To see if you qualify for a tuition waiver, please contact 360.475.7550.

Basic Studies/GED classes are located at each of the three campuses (Bremerton, Poulsbo and Shelton); as well as offsite locations in Bremerton (Goodwill) and Shelton (WorkSource).
