The Fremont Union High School District Adult School (Sunnyvale-Cupertino) was established in 1924 as part of the Fremont Union High School District. The FUHSD Adult School serves mainly the communities of Sunnyvale and Cupertino, but also welcomes students who reside outside of these two cities. Our location at the junction of highway 280 and Wolfe Road makes it an ideal place to take a break from the commute by taking a class.
Our Adult School is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. We are also a member of the North Santa Clara County Consortium (NSCCC), which collectively services adult learners throughout Silicon Valley through a partnership with Foothill-DeAnza Community College District, Palo Alto Unified School District Adult School, and Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District Adult School. The NSCCC is the group through which our Adult School receives funding from the California Adult Education Program (CAEP), and provides leadership for our region’s adult education services.
Over time, our programs have continued to emerge and evolve based on the needs of the students we serve. Our services enhance life-long learning opportunities and aid students with a range of goals including attending college, training for career advancement, learning English, becoming a citizen, obtaining employment, or updating employment skills. FUHSD Adult School program areas include:
- English as a Second Language and Citizenship;
- High School Diploma/GED and Adult Literacy;
- Parent Education and Preschool at Bright Beginnings;
- Career Advancement; and
- Community Interest (including Active Adults: 50+ at Cupertino or Sunnyvale Senior Centers).
