College & Career Readiness (CCR) [formerly Adult Basic Education (ABE)] is a free program dedicated to providing opportunities for adults to learn the basic academic and English language skills they need to transition to college, training, and employment opportunities. CCR is designed to improve the educational level of adults, out-of-school youth and non-English speaking persons in our nine-county southeastern Idaho area. Many utilize CCR services to prepare for the GED test and the college placement test.
