Adult High School

Programa de High School para Adultos

The bilingual adult high school is formed by community members who, together with volunteer facilitators (or instructors), come together to advance their education in Education and Methodology, Health, Work, Community and Housing, Immigration and Citizenship, Computers, Math and English. It began in 2011 and its members have increasingly become self-directed learners and also leaders in the Centro Autónomo. As with all education at the Centro Autónomo, the high school is an opportunity for us to learn as we also reflect on our neighborhood, our jobs, our dreams and stories, our reasons for coming to school, and our process of building community.


What Our Students Say

I learned a lot here: social studies and history. It was a wonderful experience of learning and it wasn’t boring at all. I have been in school when I was younger. I hated school. I never felt like going and now I love it. I don’t know if it is the age. I am mature now. School really causes my attention. I like what I am doing. I want to learn more and I still have a long way to go. I want to thank my teachers.

APAC Adult High School

To be able to study at the Autonomous Center was a unique experience. I thought that at my age I wouldn’t be able to complete my High School. I can’t thank the Center enough for providing us with this opportunity. I was able to finish my studies and learn much more than I imagined. Thanks to all the teachers and assistants.
