Educational excellence at all levels and for all citizens is the goal of leaders in Northwest Kentucky and the four counties in the Kyndle region. The area offers many avenues for early childhood, primary, secondary or post-secondary education.

Among post-secondary institutions, Henderson Community College offers a high-quality, targeted education to meet the professional and personal goals of all Kentuckians.
