Adult Education has been a part of the Sacramento City Unified School District’s public education program since 1872, providing 140 years of service to the Sacramento community. The adult education program has grown to include day, evening, and Saturday classes which meet the needs of the total community. Classes are held in a variety of school and non-school locations throughout the community.
The Adult Education provides lifelong educational opportunities and services to address the unique needs of individuals and communities by providing adult students with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate effectively as citizens, workers, parents and family members.
The mission of this program is to enhance life opportunities and choices of adults with developmental disabilities by nurturing within the individual an increasing and broadening sense of independence and personal fulfillment; empowering the individual to reach her or his maximum potential; developing human potential through integrated life opportunities; and providing high quality services that enable full community inclusion. The major focus of this program is to offer life skills training which emphasizes achievement of greater independence and a less restrictive lifestyle.
The ESL Programs offer multi-level classes for foreign born students to learn English for every day life in the United States. Students learn life skills, grammar, reading, pronunciation, listening and speaking.
