We offer a wide variety of classes in a safe, healthy and relaxing environment.  SBAS is located in Los Angeles County, California with campuses in Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach

What our goal is...

Our goal at South Bay Adult School (SBAS) is to empower adult learners in our English as a Second Language (ESL), Adult Secondary Education (ASE)/high school diploma, or Adult Basic Education (ABE)/high school equivalency programs to communicate effectively and pursue continuous learning while increasing their contributions to our ever-changing world. Collaboratively, we are designing and strengthening pathways to prepare students for success in both college and career. These pathways aim to support students in entering, navigating and completing community college by deepening the linkages between high school, higher education and regional industries.
