South Coast Colleges

South Coast Careers College and Adult Ed Community College are collectively known as South Coast Colleges. 

When it comes to education we open up a whole new realm of possibility all brought about by making choices – choices to pursue a career dream, choices to gain a new skill, to get a job, to progress in a job. These choices bring about our development and sense of purpose, they bring financial gain where previously there may have been none and they bring empowerment.

Don’t let the days turn into weeks and months, make the choice and make the change – your time is now.  Sarah Watterson CEO
