The Adult-Education College and Career Educational Leadership (ACCEL) program provides support services for adult school students that seek to enroll at College of San Mateo (CSM) for career education training and/or transfer opportunities. ACCEL serves students enrolled in ESL and GED/HSE programs at San Mateo and La Costa Adult Schools by offering classroom presentations about CSM certificate and degrees, 1-on-1 assistance to support student enrollment, career and academic planning, and opportunities to earn college credit in select adult school programs. As a result of these efforts, students are confident about attending college and are prepared to succeed once enrolling at CSM.
