The Bethel ABE Center provides Adult Basic Education for improving reading and math skills and GED test preparation to the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta.  We offer a weekly class schedule with specialized instructors in Bethel and an opportunity for distance instruction in the villages.

Location and Hours

The Bethel ABE Center is located inside Yuut Elitnaurviat at 610 Akiachak Dr.,
in City Sub, past Pinky’s Park and the old bowling alley, across from the new pool.

Our hours are
Monday – Friday 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.

TABE testing for students entering training is done by appointment.  If you need a TABE test for training or work, please call ahead to schedule it.

Student Orientation

Student Orientation is required for all students before beginning classes.
Student Orientation is held every Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.

All students who plan to take ABE classes or work on a GED at the Bethel ABE Center must attend Student Orientation. You may drop in and complete a Registration form anytime, but you will not be a student in the Program until you complete Student Orientation. Orientation will include a presentation explaining the Program and TABE testing. There will also be a Career and College Awareness class in the afternoon. Lunch and coffee will be available.  Please do not bring children.  All students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at Student Orientation.

Students in villages that do not have a Village Facilitator are encouraged to attend Student Orientation. The ABE Center has no funding to assist with student travel or lodging. Students who are TANF clients may receive financial support from TANF to attend Student Orientation.
