Santa Clara is a city near San Jose, California, with a population of approximately 109,000.  The city is known to have started a john school program in the 1990s, but was probably short-lived.  Men in the Santa Clara john school were included in a sample of john school participants for a study of the clients of prostituted women (Monto, 2000).  Currently, the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office occasionally arrests sex buyers, and prosecutors send some to the First Offender Prostitution Program (john school) in San Francisco.
