ABLE Orientation

All students are required to attend an ABLE Orientation before beginning classes. At orientation, students will participate in activities that build support for student success, receive relevant program information, complete student intake process, learning styles inventory, learning differences assessment, goal setting, career exploration and diagnostic testing.

Orientation must be attended in order to be placed in a class. Orientation is administered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please arrive 30 minutes before orientation is scheduled to begin.

Services are available to adults ages 18 and older. Students who are 16 or 17 years olds are also welcome with verication of withdrawal from the public schools (e.g. GED Age Waiver Form on official school letterhead signed by the superintendent or designee).

If you are under 18 years of age, you will need the following on orientation day:

  • Documentation of withdrawal from last school attended
  • Must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to sign official paperwork.

Students under 18 years of age will not be placed in a class unless the above requirements are met. The minimum age for GED classes is 16.
