Principal’s Message

Welcome to Montgomery Adult School (MOA). We have been serving the communities of South San Diego, Imperial Beach, Nestor, and Otay Mesa since 1974. MOA consists of two principle campuses—the main campus, Montgomery Adult, situated at the east end of Montgomery High School and the Imperial Beach campus located one and a half blocks from the ocean in Imperial Beach. In addition, Montgomery Adult partners with the San Diego Job Corps, South County Career Center, Public Consulting Group, Boston Reed College, the Otay Mesa Library, and several elementary and high schools in the area to better serve the community.

We offer English as a Second Language, Adult Basic Education, high school diploma/GED (including credit recovery for high school students), Computer Applications, Culinary Arts (Pastry Chef), Child Development, Parent Education, Citizenship, Jewelry making, A+ computer repair, Floral Design, American Sign Language, and Apprenticeship programs. Our collaboration with Boston Reed allows us to offer the following short careers: Pharmacy Tech, Veterinary Assistant, and EKG certificate. Classes are available morning, afternoon, and evening, Monday through Saturday, depending on the subject. In addition, we offer some Distance Learning and Independent Studies classes for students unable to attend on a daily basis.

The Montgomery Adult School culture is one of student success not only while enrolled with us but also as students transition to the world of work and/or further education. We take pride in the fact that many of our students return to continue their education where they left off or to share their success stories with us as they journey toward their goals.

Our dedicated teachers, counselors, and classified staff are ready to help you meet your goals. We look forward to working with you!
