North Orange County Regional Consortium (NOCRC)

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 supports strategy implementation 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.  

The NOCRC membership includes: 

  • North Orange Continuing Education (NOCE) 
  • Anaheim Union High School District
  • Garden Grove Unified School District
  • Fullerton Joint Union High School District
  • Los Alamitos Unified School District
  • Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District
