Welcome to the Massasoit Community College
Adult Basic Education Program

The Adult Basic Education Program (ABE) at Massasoit Community College offers adult learners English as a Second Language (ESOL) classes, and a Transition to Community College Program, to further their educational and careers goals at no cost to the students.

The Massasoit/Stoughton ESOL Program offers English language classes for students whose first language is not English. Beginner to advanced levels are offered throughout the school year at the Stoughton High School. The Transition to Community College Program, held on the Brockton campus, gives adult learners the opportunity to gain the necessary academic skills to enter a college degree or certificate program at Massasoit.

The Massasoit/Stoughton ESOL Program and the Transition to Community College Program are funded by grants from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) and are FREE to all who meet the eligibility requirements.

ABE Massasoit/Stoughton ESOL Free English Classes

Due to high demand, the Massasoit/Stoughton ESOL program has begun to use a lottery system for a seat in our FREE English classes. The lottery is held twice a year: once for the Fall semester, and once for the Spring semester.

The registration for the Fall 2021 Semester Lottery will be open from June 14, 2021 through July 31, 2021.Obtain a registration form.

Once we receive your registration, you will be contacted to take a placement test. The tests will be given in July and August by appointment only. This DOES NOT mean you have been selected.  This is to determine what level class would be best for you.

The drawing for the lottery will be on August 18, 2021. Those who are selected will be contacted by August 23, 2021. If you are not chosen, you will be put on the waiting list. If a space opens up, you may be called in at a later date.

Other ESOL classes throughout Massachusetts can be found at the following site: Adult Literacy Hotline.
