Due to the recent spike in COVID cases, we are canceling all in-person Winter Term classes to protect the health and safety of our students, staff and the community at large. Our online courses are proceeding as scheduled. For any information on our available online courses, please call our office at 310-541-2479.

We continue to closely monitor CDC, state, county and local government reports and directives, and hope to resume in-person classes with the Spring Term on April 4, 2022.

We thank you for your understanding and deeply appreciate your continuing support.
