Principals' Message

Dear Escondido Community Members:

Our Fall Semester is here, and we can finally see a light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel. Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, our students and our diligent Escondido Adult School (EAS) instructors have continued to engage on our hybrid learning platforms throughout this unprecedented school year. As our city and state move closer to re-opening, we hope you will take this opportunity to engage in lifelong learning by registering for one of our many fall courses.


EAS has been an integral part of the Escondido community for more than 50 years. During our long history, thousands of adult learners have created a better life for themselves and their families by continuing their education at EAS. Adult Learners come to EAS to improve their English, graduate from high school, study for their HiSET exams, prepare for U.S. citizenship, train for a new career, or improve personal and academic skills. Our school provides the opportunity for all our adult learners to experience life-changing success. Since we first opened our doors in 1968, our priority has been helping every EAS student reach his/her educational, career, and personal goals.


EAS is a proud member of the Education to Career Network (ETCN) and the California Council for Adult Education (CCAE), as well as a Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Accredited Adult School. We work closely with our students to connect them to professional externships or post-secondary opportunities at Palomar College. Through our association with these respected associations and our dedicated community partners, we can assure you that EAS will continue to offer our students high-quality learning experiences based on industry standards and the best practices in adult education.


We take great pride in being the co-principals of Escondido Adult School and we are thrilled to be working in this vibrant learning community. If you need further information, please feel free to call us (760) 737-8000 or check out our website at


We look forward to meeting you and serving your needs soon.

Continue to stay safe even as you pursue growth.
