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 Massasoit Community College at the Canton Campus. 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 in August for the Fall semester, and once in December for the Spring semester.

Registration for a seat in Fall 2022 Semester Lottery will be open from April 1, 2022, to June 30, 2022

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

You must take the placement test to be entered into the lottery.

The Lottery will be held in the second week of August. Those who are selected will be contacted via text. If you are not chosen, you will be put on the waiting list. If a seat becomes available, you will be contacted by text or email.

Classes for the Fall Semester will begin on Thursday, September 8, 2022. Classes will be hybrid beginning in September. Our in-person classes will be held at Massasoit Community College at the Canton Campus.
