Metro North Adult Basic Education

We have made great strides in our online learning. Metro North ABE offers a nursing test preparation course now totally online. Over this year, we have found that this is exactly what busy professionals in health careers want. A class where they do not have to travel to a classroom and can learn where ever it is convenient for them.

Now we have more students than we have ever had. It is creating a lot of work for our teachers. Taking them away from focusing on students.

We are looking for tech-savvy volunteers who could help manage the technical aspects of delivering online classes. This would include;

  • comfortable with video meeting platforms such as Zoom and Google Meet.
  • experience serving diverse populations
  • experience working on teams and being a supportive team member.
  • able to create processes and operationalize working procedures.

This seven-week class is offered three times during the year. A great opportunity for those who want to give time for a shorter timeframe.

Mission Statement

Metro North will inspire and challenge all learners to reach their full potential. In a safe and supportive environment, we will teach the skills needed to succeed as responsible citizens in our changing world.


Metro North Adult Basic Education is a well established program, known as a collaborative partner sharing resources and working to find new and innovative ways to meet the needs of our learners. We have been serving a diverse population of adult learners in the north metro communities of the Twin Cities, (Minneapolis and St Paul) for more than 30 years. Metro North ABE is one of the largest consortiums in the state and recognized as a leader in best practices in adult basic education.

We are comprised of 8 school districts, providing free classes to adults for learning English, basics in reading, writing and math skills, citizenship, preparation for college placement, GED preparation, diploma, basic computer skills, transitions to post-secondary, and work place readiness. Last year we provided services to over 2000 learners. About half are learning English in our ESL program, and the other half are in basic skills development, GED, and other classes.

Metro North's diversity is not only in its adult learners, its sites are unique in offering urban, suburban, rural and small town settings. Covering the northern part of the Twin Cities, the consortium includes these school districts: Anoka-Hennepin, Brooklyn Center, Centennial, Columbia Heights, Elk River, Fridley, Spring Lake Park and St. Francis.
