New Mission Statement

The mission of Santa Clara Adult Education is to empower adults of all ages and abilities to succeed in an ever-changing world


Message from the Directors 

Dear Community Members,

Adult Education has taken a few twists and turns in the last five years. We feel fortunate every day that we continue to be able to function as a strong organization focusing on the needs of our adult community. Although we have suffered severe budget cuts, we are looking at a brighter future as the state of California has recently designated funding for adult education through a consortium model with community colleges. This is a positive step, aligning educational pathways for adults that will lead to higher education and careers.

We mentioned in the last catalog that we have refined our mission statement. We are now working on updating our School Wide Learning Outcomes focusing on what we want students to know and be able to do as a result of taking classes with us. The student learning outcomes are listed below. We welcome your comments about them.

As the weather gets warmer, we hope you will take advantage of the many different water classes we offer.

Thank you for your continued support. 
Rochelle Kelly and Kathy Martarano, Directors
