Preparing adult students no matter where they are in their educational journey.

Welcome to the California Adult Education Program website!

This site is designed for administrators, educators, and prospective and current students. All users can find an adult school or community college in their area, learn about adult education programs and student supports, access program guidance and updates from the CAEP Office.

Last legislative session, the California Legislature mandated a change to the Adult Education Block Grant (AEBG) name, making it the state’s adult education program. The state office is now formally branding the program the California Adult Education Program (CAEP).

We have new logos that reflect this name change for use on websites and in communications.
