ADULT EDUCATION IN MINNEAPOLIS
Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) offers adult basic education, English literacy, citizenship classes, GED preparation, and adult high school courses to more than 10,800 adults annually through its Community Education program. Adult basic education, EL, and GED classes are also available through community and faith-based organizations unaffiliated with MPS ABE.
Most of these adults are served through partnerships that are part of the Minneapolis Adult Basic Education Consortium. The consortium is composed of partnerships with 17 service providers across the city that offer classes at 23 sites, including the Brian Coyle Community Center and the Riverside Plaza Resource Center. Partners are required to sign a consortium agreement each year, as well as individual agreements with MPS ABE.
