North Orange County Regional Consortium for Adult Education (NOCRC) strives to improve and expand adult education in North Orange County. Established in 2014 as a result of California legislation AB 86, NOCRC’s membership includes community colleges, K-12 school districts, county offices of education, and other community partners in the region.
NOCRC serves a population of more than 900,000 adult learners in North Orange County, including English language learners (ELL), those unemployed and/or under-educated, and individuals with disabilities. Collaborating with academic, industry, and community partners, NOCRC identifies and implements strategies to connect under-served individuals with educational opportunities to reach academic, professional, and personal goals. Students enroll in adult education programs to master the English language, gain expertise in parenting tools to support a child’s academic success, access high-demand workforce opportunities, or obtain a high school diploma or GED/HiSET certificate name a few.
