We prepare some of the 8 million Californians who feel stuck in “go-nowhere” jobs for careers with a future, and we do it through online classes, mobile apps, and apprenticeships.


We support and promote our adult learners. From pre-registration and learning, through career preparation and placement, we are here.


We place adult learners who have demonstrated job competency and readiness to work with employers who are excited to hire them for lasting, well-paying careers.

While many community colleges offer online classes, they are structured like a traditional college, that is: term-based and with fixed milestones. Calbright is different.
