Welcome From The Program Coordinator

Hello! My name is Jessica Cass. I am the Program Coordinator for Brainerd Adult Basic Education.

Whether a student is preparing for the computer-based GED Test, improving skills for employment, or preparing for educational enrollment, we have classes available to support transitions. In addition to offering ABE to community members in the Brainerd area, we also extend an invitation to community members from Crosby-Ironton, Pequot Lakes, and Pine River-Backus. Brainerd ABE can help you achieve your next educational goal!
