Adult Learning Center Services
The Adult Learning Center is operated under the belief that all students are capable
of learning and that all students want to complete some level of education. Due to
life's influences, the standard educational schedules and methods are not successful
for all students. The Adult Learning Center can provide closure in ones educational
experiences and open the possibility for continuing education.
Our services are part of Kentucky's continuing effort to improve the educational status of adult Kentuckians who do not have a high school diploma, who function at low levels of literacy, or who want to learn English as a Second Language.
- GED/Adult Basic Education Instruction

- Workplace essential skills training - Designed for qualifying adult education students; includes Kentucky Essential Skills Certificate (KESC) and National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC).
- Kentucky Paraeducator Assessment (KPA) - The Kentucky Department of Education has chosen the Kentucky Paraeducator Assessment (KPA) as a means of assessing paraeducators who do not meet the higher education requirements stipulated in NCLB. Candidates should check with the local school district in which you might be seeking employment to verify the acceptance of scores from the KPA or if the district is using an alternative assessment. Properly trained paraeducators play important roles in schools where they can magnify and reinforce instruction in the classroom.
