Calendars-Course Catalog

The San Lorenzo Adult School offers excellent classes close to home. Our students come from around the Bay Area. Some are seeking job advancement; others come to learn the basics of speaking, reading, and writing English. Many are working to improve their job prospects by completing their High School diplomas. Still, others come to pursue a hobby.  Contact the office for additional information.
