    About Us

    Dedicated Educators for Adults

    PRACEP, in Planning District 9, is one of 22 regional adult education programs in Virginia funded under the Department of Education's Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education. Almost one million adults in Virginia do not have a high school diploma or GED®. In alliance with the State of Virginia, our goal is to prepare as many of these individuals as possible for post secondary education and/or careers, through learning programs aligned with 21st century expectations and economies. 

    Additionally we strive to assist immigrants and those of foreign nationalities who need help learning the English language so that they can  better interact in their communities  and work toward goals of citizenship.

    In addition to PRACEP our organization runs the Piedmont Testing Center which is an official Pearson Vue GED® testing provider.

    Career Minded Education

    We are continuously developing partnerships and programs to help our students with career pathway activities which prepare them with the academic and work force skills they need to successfully transition into college, careers, and responsible citizenship.

    Our Mission

    The mission of PRACEP, in collaboration with mandated WIOA partners, is to raise the educational levels of eligible adults by providing academic instruction in a caring environment that strengthens literacy and English language skills, promotes the attainment of GED® credentials and provides the foundation for post-secondary education and highly skilled employment.


    PRACEP does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, political affiliation,  sex, gender, age, marital status, genetic information or disability

     in its employment practices or educational program and activities. 

    Compliance inquiries should be directed to the
