What is Adult Basic Education (ABE)?
Adult Basic Education (ABE) is a provincial High School Completion program for adult learners in Newfoundland and Labrador.
How long does it take to complete ABE?
It depends on the number of credits you need to graduate. There are three different levels of ABE:
· Level I is considered equivalent to grades K-6;
· Level II is considered equivalent to grades 7-9;
· Level III is considered equivalent to grades 10-12
· Students need a minimum of 36 credits to graduate.
Students needing six or fewer credits for graduation may be eligible to transfer ABE Level III credits back to high school and receive a Newfoundland and Labrador High School Diploma.
I am a High School Graduate but want to upgrade my marks for post-secondary. Can I do this in ABE?
Yes! Some students come in to upgrade certain subject areas to meet certain post-secondary admission requirements.
Is ABE for me?
