About Us


Adult education started in San Francisco, California in 1856. The Sweetwater Union High School District’s Division of Adult Education (SUHSD Adult Ed) began in 1933 as the Sweetwater Evening School for Adults.

Our members include Southwestern College and Coronado Adult Education. We work with workforce and education partners and community stakeholders to ensure adult students are prepared for life, for work, and to support their families and strengthen communities, no matter where they are in their educational journey.

“Located in the heart of an international border community, the mission of the Sweetwater Union High School District’s Division of Adult Education is to meet the unique needs of our diverse community, and to empower students to reach their personal, academic, and career goals. We train students to meet challenges and seize opportunities in a changing world.”
