About ABLE

ABLE (Adult Basic Literacy Education) is more than getting a GED®.

We serve the state’s adult population, including non-traditional students who left high school early, high school graduates who need additional skills before entering college or technical programs, and working adults who wish to pursue career program post-secondary credentials.

The University System of Ohio's network of ABLE programs and Ohio Technical Centers play a vital role in the economic advancement of Ohio and its citizens by serving the state's adult population.
