Adult English Classes

The Torrance Adult School thrives on "Education that Works", embracing a traditional and non-traditional, as well as technology-mediated approaches to learning. TAS's educational programs are  accessible, affordable, sustainable, and market relevant. Programs such as Parent Education, Older Adults, and Community Interests, are nearly self-sustaining offering a plethora of courses that consistently seek to remain current. English as a Second Language (ESL), Career Education, and Adult Literacy & High School Education programs are also evolutionary in the constant development of new courses as well as new learning strategies and methodologies to reach all learners. All courses are designed to develop communications skills, critical thinking, collaboration and creativity, all of which are needed to enhance personal, academic, and career success.

Each of the three Torrance Adult School Centers offer a variety of classes, specializing each in special programs.

  • The Levy Adult Center is the most updated campus due to its former temporary use as a Middle School and primarily offers Career Education courses.
  • The Griffith Adult Center primarily offers English as a Second Language (ESL) courses  
  • The Hamilton Adult Center is known for Literacy, High School Diploma, and High School Equivalency courses.
