Adult Education Classes are FREE
Keeping the working adult in mind, the OEC offers day, evening, and Saturday classes. The main objective of the Orange Education Center (OEC) is to enable adult students to maximize their potential by gaining necessary skills to reach their personal, educational, and vocational goals. To this end, the OEC also offers free assessment services, academic counseling, career counseling and orientation services to students.
Students may register for classes throughout the year. The open entry/open exit format allows for flexibility in planning. Day and evening classes are offered at convenient Orange County locations, in the communities of Orange, Anaheim Hills, and Garden Grove. Friday and Saturday classes are also available. To register for classes or for more information about class dates, times, and locations please call or visit the Orange Education Center.

My brother and I completed our education at the OEC Adult Education Program. We both graduated with our High School Diploma with High Honors. I continued my education at Santiago Canyon College and completed my AA Degree. I then got accepted into the Cypress Dental Hygienist Program, and my brother is now attending UC Berkeley and studying Chemistry!! We both know that nothing is easy and that we have to work hard to make it happen. Luckily for both of us, we were taught how to study and stay focused at OEC.
