    Message from the Director:

    At the Abisi Adult Education Center, we frequently hear comments like: "I should never have quit school."  "I am too old to go back to school." "My English is not good enough."  "I am not good at math" or  "I don’t understand what I read.” 

    You’re never too old to help yourself! You are important! Take advantage of the opportunity for you to earn your high school credential or to improve your English language skills. Many doors will open to you once you return to school. 

    Our classes are FREE to adult residents of the Greater Lowell area,  thanks to funding from Lowell Public Schools and the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. 

    We hope to see you soon – you owe it to yourself!
