Upland Adult School has been successfully preparing adults in the Upland Community since 1989. Over the years, we have prepared adult students, guiding them to the completion of their high school diplomas, improvements in English Literacy skills, and computer comprehension.

English as a Second Language (ESL) is for our non-native speakers who wish to learn, speak, read, and write English for many reasons: to get a job, get a better job, go to school, become U.S. citizens, or just to help increase their involvement in their children’s education or activities. We offer three levels of classes to learn English. Class availability is offered mornings and evenings. Please call the Upland Adult Ed Office for more information at (909) 985-1864 ext. 21144.
Citizenship class prepares students, by improving reading and speaking skills, to successfully pass USCIS approved examinations. Students will learn specifics about United States History, the United States Government, the N400, and practice for the USCIS citizenship interview.
Computer classes are designed to help those who are new to technology and the computer. Students will improve keyboarding/typing, learn basic computer technology skills, learn to navigate the internet and effective personal and professional email. Students will learn to use the computer while preparing resumes and personal budgets. Instruction will cover MS Word, MS Excel, and MS Powerpoint.
