Adult Education

The Strategic Partnerships and Workforce Development Division at Skyline College develops quality experiences to support adults in our community. We currently offer several classes and events that help adult students get college and career ready. Students who enroll in these classes receive academic and career counseling, internship and employment assistance, and guided support for entering into Skyline College. The events are designed to help connect students to important resources, information, and to receive college preparation tools.

About ACCEL

The Adult-Education College and Career Educational Leadership (ACCEL) is the planning body for San Mateo County’s Adult Education Block Grant funding.

The consortium includes the San Mateo Community College District, five adult schools, K-12 district offices and several regional community partners throughout the county.

Locally, North County’s Collaborative Action Team includes Skyline College, Jefferson Adult School and South San Francisco Adult School.

Our programs serve to:

  • Improve students’ English and math skills through contextualized learning.
  • Increase student knowledge of community resources and support services and provide dedicated support staff in assisting students with financial planning and increasing academic, life and leadership skills.
  • Create a structured and clear pathway into Skyline College that is specifically designed for adult education students. This includes guided support during the application process and access to college level courses (available on adult school sites) that help students get through college easily, quickly and affordably.
  • Provide career exploration, hands-on experience through internship opportunities and assistance with job placement
