Antelope Valley Adult School

Message from the Director

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!
The Antelope Valley Adult School is excited to begin the 2017-18 school year.  In an effort to offer our students the best educational experience possible, we have made the following changes for the upcoming school year:  
  • New strengthened partnerships with the cities and business industries we serve: We have entered into partnerships with multiple agencies around the valley to increase our ability to provide high quality educational programs and career training.
  • The Career Technical Education programs at AVAS exists to train students, not just for jobs, but careers. We provide career paths that lead to Industry Certification in several areas including Medical Assistant, Medical Billing, Administrative Assistant, Graphic Design, Pharmacy Technician, and Dental Assistant. Industry Certification gives our students a leg up when searching for that perfect job.
AVAS offers classes at various locations in the Antelope Valley as well as an online preparation class for High School Equivalency. Instructor-taught classes focus on Math and Writing to prepare students for the HSE exam with Science and Social Studies lessons as needed. Classes offer students the opportunity to take practice tests and ensure they are prepared to pass the HSE test on the first try.
Antelope Valley Adult School is ready to support you in your “Education for Life” efforts.
Enjoy Your Learning,
Steven Radford, Ed.D
