Adult Education

Maine Adult Education is an education, life and career pathways system that enables adults to be prepared for post-secondary education and/or employment. Providing courses in literacy and adult basic education, high school completion, Maine college transition, career preparation and enrichment, Maine Adult Education has over 70 programs located through out the state..

Adult education programs provide a range of instructional services to help adults develop the skills for further educational opportunities, job training and better employment, and to realize their full potential as productive workers, family members and citizens. Academic instruction is focused on supporting students in their efforts to meet the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) for Adult Education created for the Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education. The CCRS Standards were, in turn, adopted by the Maine Office of Adult Education.

Maine Adult Education partners with the Maine Adult Education Association, a professional organization that advocates for adult education locally, statewide and nationally, and supports its members in order to meet the educational needs of Maine's adults.
