  •   Poway Adult School Fall 2022 Catalog


    Fall 2022-23 Catalog


    Director Message
    Welcome to Poway Adult School’s 2022 Fall Quarter!Director of CTAAE, Kathleen Porter

    Fall is a time of year typically associated with going back to school, so this might be the perfect quarter for you to consider returning to school to upgrade your career skills or pursue a personal interest.

    One of the things we’ve learned is that living through and with a pandemic has had a significant effect on individual’s personal and career goals. As a result, staff at Poway Adult School have been surveying our community and retooling our offerings in response to the feedback we’ve received.

    One major difference you’ll notice this term is the expansion of our adult Career Technical Education courses. These courses are offered both in-person and online. Some of these new offerings include Entrepreneurship and related Technology courses, so that you will be able to learn the skills to become the architect of your career going forward. We’re also introducing a number of new Community Education classes to meet your personal goals.

    Some of the new classes in the personal interest category include:

    • Clay sculpting horse figures
    • Oil painting composition
    • Resin jewelry
    • Decorative craftband weaving
    • Mahjong
    • Nutrition courses
    • Poise and Presence
    • Autobiographical Story Telling
    That said, rest assured that we will continue to offer your old favorites. Whether it’s learning something new or continuing to hone your skills in an area you already know and love, we hope you’ll be returning to school with us this fall. 

    See you in class!

    Kathleen Porter
