Kentucky Adult Education


Today, about 317,000 working-age Kentuckians do not have a high school or GED diploma. Our mission is to work with Kentuckians to improve their quality of life through education, training, and employment so they can take care of themselves and their families and help their communities and the state’s economies expand and thrive.

Kentucky Adult Education provides free adult education services in all 120 counties to help Kentuckians obtain a GED. Through Kentucky Adult Education, Kentuckians can gain reading, math, and communications skills that place them on a path to higher education and training and earn certifications to move ahead in their careers. 

Local Kentucky Adult Education teachers are ready in every county to help you break through barriers to reach your education and career goals. We focus on where you are now and give you the tools you need to qualify for more and better jobs, classes, and higher pay.
