What We Teach


Our programs meet students where they are and help them reach their potential. In elementary and middle school, that includes a standards-based, individualized approach to learning.

With a strong foundation, students enter high school where they receive the support they need to meet the rigorous demands of a college-prep high school diploma.

California high school diplomas are available from our secondary programs and through our partnerships with school districts and community colleges.

Students also have the option to earn a certificate of completion, which marks their achievement of personalized academic growth.

Life Skills

Social skills, executive functioning, and resilience are crucial to success in life, which is why we integrate these skills -- and so many more -- into our academic programs.

High schoolers are able to gain work experience through internships with our community partners. These job opportunities give students the chance to apply the skills they learn in school to real-world situations.

Vocational skills are also explored through on-campus ventures. Students learn how to interact with clientele at in-house cafes, taking orders, recording sales, and keeping the books.

social-emotional learning

Combine academics and life skills with social-emotional learning, and you have a program designed to meet the needs of the whole child.

Emotional well-being and self-regulation are essential to social mobility and independence. We teach students how to identify their emotions and express themselves in appropriate and healthy ways.

Social-emotional learning doesn't stop with the individual. By learning how to identify and articulate their feelings, students help create a more cohesive, harmonious school climate.
