    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 Director Spring 2017
    Dear Community,
    Santa Clara Adult Education continues to work collaboratively with other local adult schools, community colleges, and job centers to provide seamless transitions between our organizations. If you want to attend college, enter a career, or get a better paying job, enrolling in Santa Clara’s adult education programs will help you jumpstart that process.
    Improving your English, brushing up on your basic math and writing skills, getting a high school diploma or equivalency or increasing your technology skills will greatly improve your chances. If you are not sure what your next step might be, but need assistance in determining what might be appropriate for you, please take time to browse through this catalogue or call to speak to a transition specialist. For those of you looking to enhance your life by taking an enrichment or exercise/health class, please check out the array of classes offered. Each term we offer new opportunities that will meet your lifelong learning needs. Treat yourself this spring to exercising in the pool, digging in the garden or dabbling in painting. I look forward to seeing you on campus.
    With warm regards,
    Kathy Martarano, Director
