Facts about Evans


Evans Community Adult School (CAS) has a long history of serving students in the community of Los Angeles. Evans CAS is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) in the Division of Adult and Career Education.

Our main campus is located in the middle of downtown Los Angeles at 717 N. Figueroa Street, at the intersection of Figueroa and Sunset Boulevard. Our teachers are credentialed by the State of California with many years of teaching experience instructing a truly international student population. We are open from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday.

We offer free classes in all levels of English as a Second Language (ESL) from beginning to advanced. For students who cannot attend regular classes due to work or family commitments, an ESL Distance Learning program is available for students to study English at home with friends and family by watching lessons on DVD and completing weekly assignments.

Students may also enroll in our free academic program to take the courses they need to acquire their high school diploma or to prepare for the High School Equivalency test (HiSet). Our counselors are available daily to answer questions, evaluate transcripts, and get them into a program that best suits their needs.

Evans CAS has a second campus at Hollywood High School offering the same programs Monday through Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This campus is located at 1521 N. Highland Avenue at the intersection of Highland and Sunset Boulevard.

Career training classes are available at the Evans CAS campus daily and include Computer Operations, Pharmacy Technician, Physical Therapy Aide, Health Information Technician and and a new Medical Assistant program to start in January 2017. These are short term programs that students can complete in as little as three months and as long as six months. As part of the public education system of LAUSD, these classes prepare students to be job ready costing a fraction of what is charged by private schools.

Evans CAS is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges which means all programs and courses are recognized by the State of California and academic courses are accepted by all colleges and universities. To learn more, visit our website at, or call us at 213-613-7900.
