Center for Student Parents

Emphasizing the importance of education to the people of Kentucky!

As our society depends more and more on intellectual muscle, education will be the best way Kentuckians can stay ahead of the curve. By going back to school you have the opportunity to increase your earning potential. Statistics have shown that people with a college degree, on average, earn more than those with a high school degree. They also face a lower unemployment rate and better job opportunities. Mothers who earn a college degree often have children who follow in their footsteps and become college educated themselves. Education helps improve lives for many generations to come by breaking the cycle of poverty.
