Adult Education

Tahlequah Public Schools
(ABE) Adult Basic Education 
(HSE) High School Equivalency Preparation 

The Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education, Adult Basic Education Division, provides an opportunity for the area adults to attend educational classes. These free of charge classes serve as the “umbrella” for a variety of programs offered to the community through the Tahlequah Public School District.  These programs include (ABE) Adult Basic Education classes, (HSE) High School Equivalency test preparation, and (ELL) English Language Learners.

The Adult Education and Literacy Program is funded by the Federal Government and Tahlequah Public Schools. The program serves anyone 16 years of age and older, not currently enrolled in public schools. However, 16-17 year olds must have a GED Test Agreement form signed and notarized by a parent and an administrator from the school district in which they live (or the last school they attended). These forms can be obtained at 351 Academy, in the main office on Central Campus, bldg. B.

Duplicate copies of GED High School Diploma and Transcript can purchased at www.diplomasender.com
