Adaptive Computer Training

New classes start September 6, 2016! Check out our “Resources” tab below to learn more.

The SACT is devoted to improving job marketable skills for people with disabilities. In addition to our Microsoft-approved curriculum and certifications in the Microsoft suite, we also offer customer service and computing fundamentals courses.

Though the school originally opened for adults affected by the digital divide, we now partner with the Workforce Alliance, Unified School District 259, United Cerebral Palsy, and United Way to offer morning, afternoon, and summer classes to help high school students earn school credit and learn skills that enable them to pursue their college/vocational goals.

We also offer remote learning classrooms throughout the state, using video conferencing equipment. Youth and adult students receive financial literacy training on topics such as budgeting, saving money, understanding loans and credit, preventing identity theft, and interpreting credit scores and reports. Financial literacy sessions enable our students to leave with a better comprehension of personal finance and responsibility. Our classroom is fully accessible for people who use wheelchairs or have other needs.
