Adult Basic Education

Recognized by the California Department of Education as a Program of Excellence, our Adult Basic Education program offers adults a way to advance their reading, writing, and math skills to the high school level. If your goal is to proceed from this class to the high school forum class, then you can be working on elective and high school credits and apply them towards an SVAE high school diploma.


Adult High School Diploma

We provide the opportunity to attain a high school diploma by concentrating on one subject at a time. Classes are offered during the morning and evening to accommodate student schedules.

Classes are designed for adult students to complete the courses necessary for their high school diploma. Each individual program is developed by counselors based on transcripts from students’ previous schooling, work experience, military service, knowledge of a foreign language and other sources. Students work at their own pace on individual course plans.


High School Equivalency GED/HiSET (HSE)

High school equivalency (HSE) exams are for out-of-school youth and adults without a high school diploma.

We offer free HSE test preparation classes and testing at our campus. Our classes prepare students for five tests required for the General Educational Development (GED) or California High School Equivalency (HSE) Certificate.


Career Technical Education

Career Technical Education (CTE) provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners. CTE prepares students for the world of work by introducing them to workplace competencies and makes academic content accessible to students by providing it in a hands-on context.
