Adult Basic Skills classes help students to improve their reading, writing, and math skills. While in class, students build upon past experience and knowledge to progress toward their educational and employment goals. Students with literacy up to pre-college math, reading, and writing ability work on developing these skills in the Adult Basic Skills class. The courses have an academic and employment focus. These classes are appropriate for students who have their high school diploma.

Adult Basic Skills classes are open to anyone over 18 who wants to improve their reading, writing, or math. Students 16-17 years old must either be exempted from compulsory high school attendance, or obtain an official GED Options release from their local high school before attending class.

New students need to attend an Orientation prior to beginning class. Orientation schedules are printed in the TBCC schedule of classes each term. Alternative Orientation dates may be arranged if needed. Please contact Adult Basic Skills at (503)842-8222 ext. 1070 for assistance.
