Adult Education (AE) provides assessment, High School Equivalences preparation, High School refresher classes, Workforce Readiness Skills, Career Pathways, and ELA (English Language Acquisition). The Adult Education Program offers classes at the Tays Center and Mescalero Empowerment Center. The TABE assessments and curriculum are used for preparing and teaching the students enrolled in our classes.

The AE program has implemented managed enrollment. This means that no testing will be allowed while classes are in session and students may not join a class once the session has started (unless approved by the Director).

Registration is required before entering into the classes. This applies to High School Equivalences, ELA (English Language Acquisition), Citizenship classes. To register, visit the Adult Education office located at the Tays Center or call 575.439.3812.
