South Bay Adult Education Consortium

South Bay Adult Education Consortium

The South Bay Adult Education Consortium was formed in response to Assembly Bill 86 (AB86) which provides one-time funding to redesign the delivery of adult education in California. The Legislature has committed funds to regional consortia of K-12 school districts and community college districts to develop plans for expanding and improving adult education services. By creating linkages between the educational systems, AB86 provided the opportunity for developing the statewide collaboration and regional approach needed to better serve the educational needs of adults. As of now, this funding is on-going. 

The four adult schools and regional occupation center in El Camino College's service area Include:

Centinela Valley Adult School

Inglewood Adult School

South Bay Adult School

Torrance Adult School


Each adult school offers free ESL courses, GED or high school diploma preparation and free/low cost short term training programs. Many programs are offered in partnership with El Camino College. For a detailed overview of the programs and services offered at each location, please check out the flyer below.
