Piedmont Regional Adult and Career Education Programs (PRACEP), in Planning District 9 (Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock. Counties), is one of 22 regional adult education programs funded by the Virginia 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®. PRACEP's goal is to prepare as many individuals as possible for post secondary education and/or careers, and provide English language classes for non-native speakers.
PRACEP is an official Pearson VUE GED® testing provider.
We are continuously developing partnerships and programs to help learners with career pathway activities (academic and work force skills)
needed to successfully transition into college and careers.
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.
