Welcome to PVAEC - Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative

Important Announcement (Updated Monday, March 23, 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 will now remain closed through April 27. 

Academic Students

This is not a vacation! If you haven’t gotten in touch with your instructor, please do so soon. Our instructors are working hard at putting together distance learning packets to help you continue towards your goals.

Enrichment Students and Instructors

All Enrichment classes will be postponed and new dates set. We will contact instructors at the end of April to set new dates, and then we will contact students with the new information. If you prepaid for a class not yet begun, we can offer you a credit towards a future class (to be used by Dec 31, 2020) or reimburse your registration fee minus the processing fee for online registrations. Registration refunds made by mail, check or cash will take 2+ weeks for processing. If you wish to discontinue a class you are currently in, we can offer you a pro-rated credit towards a future class (to be used by Dec 31, 2020).

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.
