As a student in Osseo Area School’s Adult Basic Education programming, we ask you to commit to the following.
The state adult high school diploma is a competency-based diploma, completed through participation in an approved Minnesota Adult Basic Education program, and recognized by the state through a diploma awarded by the Minnesota Department of Education.
English Language Learning (ELL) instruction is provided for immigrants and refugees who are learning English.
Osseo ABE partners with Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) at Willow Lane to offer family EL (English Language) classes.
GED preparation at Osseo ABE helps adults prepare to take and pass the assessment in order to obtain a high school credential.
The Osseo Area Schools volunteer program builds community, supports student success and inspires people to excel. Find out more.
