Adult, Career and Technical Preparation Schools

There are four Adult, Career and Technical Preparation Schools in the Sacramento City Unified School District.  Learn more about each school and the classes/programs available.

Admission Requirements

Classes are open to adults 18 years of age or older who meet certain educational prerequisites and criteria, and can profit from instruction.  In addition, high school students who have completed concurrent forms may request enrollment in high school credit classes, but permission must be obtained from parent and a high school counselor/administrator before applying for admission.  For additional information contact your high school counselor.


Many programs allow students to enroll at any time providing room is available.  Most adult classes allow students to work at their own pace.  Interested persons should contact the school of choice for specific registration information.

Safety Protocols for Adult Classes at K-12 School Sites

Some of our K-12 school sites offer Adult Education classes on campus for parents and community members. It is important that we make adult learners – who show a daily commitment to bettering their lives through continuing their education – feel welcome at our schools. At the same time, we must be more diligent than ever before to ensure that our schools are safe for kids. To that end, there are specific safety/background checks for adult students on campuses that also serve children. This process is as follows:

  1. Before attending their first class, each prospective student will undergo a thorough sex offender background check through Megan’s List.
  2. Once the Megan’s List check has cleared, students will be enrolled in their class and issued a picture ID badge. This badge MUST be worn on the outside of the adult student’s clothes at ALL TIMES while on campus.
  3. Upon arriving to school for each class, adult students MUST sign in at the office (or, if the school prefers, in the specific classroom).
  4. Adult education students will take a teacher-supervised break to use restrooms.
  5. Teachers will be given specific talking points as to why this change has been made (safety concerns at schools in other districts were the impetus of this change).
  6. Each site will develop a map to distribute to adult students so that they enter and exit the same way and use the same restrooms.

PLEASE NOTE: This process is ONLY applicable on K-12 campuses.

If you have any questions, please contact the administration of the school where the class is offered.
