Adult Education:

  • Adult Basic Education (ABE) seems to be called "Bridge to Best Program" at CCRI. But this may be just Adult Secondary Education? [Why do education professionals rename things needed by people who can't read well??? Why not leave it as Adult Basic Education? Perhaps to take away a supposed stigma? But really it should be easy to find any ABE assistance in Rhode Island! -ed.]
  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • GED - "Adult Education provides adult learners opportunities to gain foundation skills through GED preparation and testing and English as a second language (ESL) courses. There are multiple levels of both GED and ESL classes to meet a range of educational needs. Staff also helps students transition from ESL and GED classes to credit-bearing or certification courses. To speak with staff, please call 401-455-6144." [From the website, March 2, 2019]
  • There are other Career Training programs in health care, trades, manufacturing, and technology.
