Director's Message

Susie Passeggi (Director)

Greetings! Castro Valley Adult & Career Education (CVACE) is celebrating 50 years of providing high-quality adult education services to our community! Since the fall of 1965 when CVACE first opened its doors as part of the Castro Valley School District, we have been the on-ramp for thousands of adults in our community to get back on track, move forward, go to college, get jobs, be successful, and engage in stimulating and life-changing lifelong learning. We have much to celebrate and we are proud of our tradition of excellence! Stay tuned for information on our upcoming anniversary celebration.

Our 4th Annual Parent University, Strategies and Resources for Raising Successful Children, will take place Saturday, October 17. See pages 20 and 21 for the lineup of helpful workshops to support you in the most important job of all – parenting. Enroll early to ensure your spot in the workshop of your choice!

We are excited to introduce to you our new Superintendent, Parvin Ahmadi, with the following message to our community: “The Castro Valley Unified School District strongly believes in lifelong learning, a journey that begins in the cradle and continues into adulthood. The dedicated professionals at Castro Valley Adult & Career Education work hard to ensure that their course offerings meet the needs of adults in the 21st century. It’s an honor to support our local adult community with opportunities for continuous learning.”


Hoping to see you on campus,
Susie Passeggi, Director & Sharon Travers, Assistant Principal
