The Adult Opportunity Center (AOC) provides Aspire classes (formerly know as ABLE) on each campus and at several off-campus locations. The program is offered FREE to any individual who is at least 16* years of age. All books and materials are provided and no fees are charged for instruction.
Morning, afternoon and evening classes are scheduled with fully qualified instructors present at each site. A variety of services are offered including:
College refresher/readiness courses
GED preparation including practice testing (only offered at the GED Testing Center)
Nursing program preparation
Reading, writing and math improvement
The Aspire program offers services for improving the basic skills of reading, writing and math. Parents will enroll to be better equipped at helping their children with homework. Other adults enroll just for self-improvement. Enrollment is open to any adult who has a deficiency in any of these areas.
Following assessment, students work with the Aspire staff to establish an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) to assist in defining goals and developing activities. ILPs are designed to assist you in meeting your own educational or career objectives.
*Because compulsory school attendance is to the age of 18 in the state of Ohio, additional requirements are in place for those who are under the age of 19. Please Contact us for information
