Community Education

The Community Education program complements and expands the activities of the college to meet the dynamic educational, cultural, and life­-enrichment needs of the community through noncredit and fee-based programs and activities.

Community Education offers noncredit courses in the following 10 instructional areas:  Basic Skills, Citizenship, English as a Second Language, Family and Consumer Sciences, Health and Safety, Parenting, courses for Older Adults, courses for Adults with Disabilities, Short-Term Vocational, and Workforce Preparation.  Noncredit classes are supported by the state Chancellor’s Office and are free to the public.  The noncredit program provides adults the opportunity to learn English, earn a vocational certificate, prepare for the GED or citizenship tests, upgrade job skills, strengthen basic skills, or transfer to credit.

Arturo Avila
Science Instructor, PVHS

One of the obstacles that I had to overcome was breaking the language barrier. Another obstacle I faced was financial hardship. As I completed my classes at AHC, I had to work in many part-time jobs such as a math/science tutor for the college tutoring center, night shift clerk for a local grocery store and vegetable cooling. Also, the MESA program and the STEM Center, not only supported me academically through resources such as access to books and computers, but also through working with students with interest in mathematics, science and engineering.
