Parent Education Program

The mission of the Parent Education Program is to empower students to graduate high school as confident parents who have the skills needed to maintain family stability and pursue personal goals.

The City of Lexington’s Parent Education Program partners with Fayette County Public Schools to provide high school education and social services intervention to young parents and expectant youth ages 13 – 20 years old.

  • In addition to high school education, students will participate in parenting and life skills classes designed to prepare them for their future as a parent and provider.
  • All students with children are required to enroll their children in the Early Child Care Program.
  • The City contracts with FCPS to provide daily bus transportation for students and their children.
  • While enrolled in the program, students may still participate in extracurricular activities (sports, prom, clubs, etc.) at their districted high school.
