Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of Adult Education and Literacy (OAEL) is to provide leadership and assistance to adult education and literacy programs with the purpose of raising the literacy levels of Virginia adults and out-of-school youth who do not have a high school credential.

To achieve this mission, OAEL has set the following broad goals:

  • Raise the performance levels of adult education programs funded by OAEL.
  • Increase the number of GED® credentials and adult high school diplomas awarded in Virginia.
  • Increase efficiency, promote professionalism, and provide high quality customer service to all constituencies served.
  • Strengthen and expand collaborative relationships between adult education programs and mandated partners within Virginia's workforce development system and contribute to the transition of adults to employment and/or post-secondary education.
  • Contribute to the development of Virginia's workforce and, as a result, to the economic development of the Commonwealth.

New Student Orientation will be conducted throughout the program year. Please contact our office at (757) 393-8822 to obtain more information.
