Adult Education

 What is Adult Education?

The mission of Kentucky Adult Education (KYAE) is to raise the educational levels of more than one million Kentucky adults with low literacy skills and to assist the nearly 786,000 adults who do not have a high school credential to earn a GED® diploma.  KYAE's goal is to help these adults gain the academic skills and credential they need to function productively in the workplace, support themselves and their families and make positive contributions to society and the economy.  A local adult education program in every county provides academic instruction in reading, writing, math, science and social studies to help adults improve their literacy skills, earn a GED diploma, prepare for college and employment and learn English as a second language.

  • It is the mission of the Pike County Adult Education & Literacy Program to provide services that will improve an individual's ability to read, write and speak English: compute; solve problems; and function effectively in the workplace, family and society.

  • These programs provide free, direct, comprehensive basic skills and family literacy services.

  • Family Literacy Programs are designed to break the intergenerational cycle of under-education by providing opportunities for parents and their children to learn together.  Family literacy provides parents with basic academic and employability skills; emphasizes parenting and life skills; ensures that children are provided age-appropriate educational instruction; and ensures developmentally appropriate experiences that require interaction between parents and children.
