Today, about 300,000 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 care for themselves and their families and help their communities and the state’s economies expand and thrive.
Kentucky Adult Education (KYAE) provides free adult education services in all 120 counties to help Kentuckians obtain a GED® credential. Through KYAE, Kentuckians can gain reading, math, and communications skills that place them on a path to higher education and training and earn certifications to advance in their careers.
Local KYAE instructors 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 better jobs and higher pay.
Kentucky Adult Education is funded from federal and state dollars and overseen by the Kentucky Education and Labor Cabinet.
