South San Francisco Adult Education is part of the ACCEL consortium - a coalition of adult schools, community colleges and partners throughout San Mateo County - that is rethinking and redesigning Adult Education to accelerate student success. South San Francisco Adult Education has developed a schedule of classes that will support our mission of providing adult students with the skills to advance their education, employment, and success. These classes include Adult Secondary Education, varied levels of English as a Second language, Career Technical Education, and Community Based Education. If you have enjoyed learning with us in the past, we look forward to your return. If you have not taken the opportunity to enrich your skills and your life, now is the time to enroll at South San Francisco Adult Education.

SSF Adult Education & Skyline College partner to provide Hospitality & Tourism Management Adult School Bridge Experience
The Hospitality Advance class was a free non-credit class offered this Fall 2016 to our Intermediate low and Intermediate high English classes as a supplement to their regular English classes. The 8 week class is designed especially for non-native English speakers and is perfect for those students who are interested in working within the Hospitality industry (front desk receptionist at a hotel, restaurant manager, host/hostess, tour guide, concierge, flight attendant, etc.). Students who attend this class and mornings from students are able to develop confidence in their English, expand their cultural awareness, and learn to communicate effectively in a hospitality environment. This semester 39 students received a certificate of completion from Hospitality Advance and had the option of continuing on to the for-credit classes of HTM 124 (Excellence in Service) and HTM 125 (Restaurant/Banquet Operations).
