Welcome to BPACE

BPACE has received Programs of Excellence Awards
from the California Department of Education in Four
Program Areas!

Each year, the California Department of Education
(CDE) Identifies Adult Education Programs of Excellence.
Programs that earn the designation of Programs
of Excellence are characterized by the outstanding
services they provide to adult learners--services
that are both innovative and exemplary. In reviewing
