Important Announcement (Updated Monday, August 10, 2020)

We are now in Phase 1 of our Return to Business plan. Our Academic Learning Centers in Dexter (Dexter Learning Center) and Dover (Penquis Higher Education Center) are open by appointment for one-on-one meetings with your instructor. Students are expected to wear appropriate face coverings when in common areas of the learning centers.  Wearing face coverings in the classroom will be at the discretion of your instructor. Upon arrival, the front door at PHEC (Dover) and the classroom door at DLC (Dexter) will be locked. Please arrive promptly at your designated appointment time (as we will be expecting you) and knock on the door. A PVAEC staff person will come out and ask you a series of health/wellness screening questions upon entry. If you are not feeling well on the day of your appointment, we ask that you please stay home and reschedule when you are feeling better. We are still offering remote/distance and pickup/drop off options for all academic students in Dexter, Dover, Guilford and Milo.

Please contact your instructor to make an appointment for in-person learning.

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.
