Adult Education

South Bay Consortium for Adult Education

Mission College is a member of the South Bay Consortium for Adult Education. We work with other members in the region to provide a seamless transition between adult school and entry into community college. 

We also support adults who are reentering education after a period of time.

Adult Education at Mission College is focused on helping students, of any age, transition into college.

We help non-traditional students:

  • Who are starting over;
  • Looking to change careers;
  • Who've been in the workforce for a while and looking to return or start college.

In particular we support enrollment into noncredit programs and the transition from adult school or noncredit community college courses into credit-bearing courses and programs.

Early Childhood Education Transition Pathway for Adult School Students 

As part of our partnership with the South Bay Consortium for Adult Education, we offer specialized ESL courses for adult school students who wish to study Early Childhood Education.

Courses are held online or at the Santa Clara Adult School location on Benton Street, in Santa Clara.
