FLCC’s Adult Education Program strives to assist adults 18 years of age or older in acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed. We encourage the adult student to become more employable, to become a successful partner in their children’s education, and to be a more productive member of their community.

Adult Basic Education (ABE)

ABE is an adult literacy program that provides instruction in basic reading, writing, and math. Instruction is offered by instructors in classroom environments and by individual tutors. The ABE program serves students with limited literacy skills below the 8th grade level.

GED Program

FLCC offers classes to help students prepare for the General Education Development (GED) Test. The GED certificate is widely accepted as an equivalent to a high school diploma.

  • GED Preparation: This class helps students learn the skills they need to pass the GED test. Instruction covers language arts, writing and reading, science, social studies and mathematics skills.
  • GED Fast Track: This accelerated program is for students who wish to move at a rapid pace and take the GED at the end of the class. Acceptance to the Fast Track depends upon a minimum score on a standardized assessment.
  • GED Computer Instruction and Practice Tests: Students will learn and practice skills necessary to pass the GED test using computer software in the FLCC’s Computer Lab. Participants will also have access to GED practice tests.
