Who is Los Angeles Unified Adult Education?

The Los Angeles Unified Division of Adult and Career Education (LA Unified Adult Education), having successfully served millions of students over the decades, are dedicated teachers, administrators and support staff who provide access to high quality pre- and post-secondary education and training opportunities in local communities throughout Greater Los Angeles. We are both a national and state leader in adult education, helping nearly 50,000 students annually to learn English, earn their high school diplomas and train for careers. We also administer the largest apprenticeship training program in the country.

The LA Unified Adult Education mission is a straightforward one — empowering all learners to reach their academic, career and civic goals. Towards that end, we pledge to remain unconditionally committed to continuing our long-held tradition of providing all Angelinos with access to our high-quality educational programs, with a focus on ensuring equity for adult learners with high barriers to employment and higher education.
