Welcome to PVAEC - Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative

The Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative (PVAEC) is a collaborative formed in 2005 that combines four school districts:  MSAD 4 (Guilford), MSAD 41 (Milo), AOS 94 (Dexter) and RSU 68 (Dover-Foxcroft).  Our cooperative pools all of our talents and resources to best serve the communities that make up this region. We have Learning Centers in Dexter, Dover Foxcroft, Guilford, and Milo.

PVAEC offer courses in 5 major categories:

Career Readiness courses help prepare our students by providing the modern skills training necessary for new careers, promotions, and other career advancement.

College Transitions courses assist people of all ages wishing to make the transition into college-level courses.

HiSET™ & High School Diploma courses help people complete their high school education.

Adult Transitions courses are for people who already have their high school credential, but want to continue learning, and our Career Readiness and College Transitions programs don’t fit your needs.

Enrichment courses include courses in skills such as arts & crafts, fitness, gardening/farming and also include a variety of unique and fun experiences.
