Director's Message

Dear South Bay Adult School Community,


As we enter the eighth month of having to confront the effects of this pandemic, I wanted to highlight some of the work that is going on at SBAS.

  1. ADULT ED CLASSES CONTINUE: In our critical areas of English as a Second Language (ESL), High School Diploma for Adults, General Educational Development (GED) Tests, and Career Pathways, we continue to offer distance learning classes. These classes have never stopped and the never will!
  2. GED TESTING AVAILABLE: We are one of the first locations in Los Angeles County to open and offer this critical service to students. Sign up to take a test at Space is limited.
  3. STUDENT SUPPORT: SBAS offers support to help students find employment, as well as other resources to support family needs during this difficult time. For the most up-to-date information, subscribe to the page of SBAS's very own Career, Placement, and Support Coordinator, Hawa Ganda by clicking here.

We know that these programs are critical to many of your career and familial needs and we intend to be here as a support for you. If we can be of any help, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our office staff is in an ready to support you.


As for our other programs such as the South Bay Family Tree Parent Education Program and our Community Education program, when we are able to announce the reopening of these classes, we will do so on this website and on social media. (Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter)


Take care and stay healthy,
