Important Announcement (Updated Monday, May 18, 2020)

In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our region, and under the direction of our local school districts and the Maine CDC, PVAEC and our physical Learning Centers will now remain closed through June. Academic students are expected to keep in touch with instructors and continue towards your goals through distance learning. All Enrichment courses are postponed until further notice.

Our physical Learning Centers are closed due to COVID-19, but we are still here! Our staff and instructors are staying safe at home while working remotely, and we are currently accepting new academic students! If you have a computer and reliable internet access, you can join our program. We can’t fix all of the world’s problems, but we believe having a positive goal to focus on is tremendously helpful in times of crisis. 

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.

All Enrichment classes are postponed until further notice. If you prepaid for a class not yet begun, please hang in there until classes are rescheduled. If you are unable to attend a rescheduled course, we will offer you a refund or a credit towards a future class. If you wish to discontinue a class that had already started, we can offer you a pro-rated credit towards a future class (to be used by Dec 31, 2020).
