CCCS serves special populations which include a high percentage of students who are credit-deficient, fifth year seniors, pregnant and parenting teens, emancipated youth, and homeless youth. CCCS strives to create multiple pathways to meet the diverse needs of this unique student population.
CCCS is committed to providing access to high-quality education to students by emphasizing standards-based curriculum. Instructors and specialists provide instructional guidance and support, assist in identifying student instructional needs, and provide individualized educational plans.
CCCS has a variety of successful labs, tutoring opportunities and small classes to support students to succeed within their independent study.
The school was founded in the belief that all students can learn and achieve if the basic needs of students are being met.
By facilitating access to district/social/community services and support, CCCS works with students and families to ensure that support systems are in place to meet the unique needs of at-risk-youth. To these ends, CCCS has partnered with organizations like the City of Sacramento, La Familia Counseling Center, WEAVE, Student Reach, and Serve Partnerships.
By linking social service organizations and education, CCCS is able to serve students who have been disenfranchised from the traditional school system.
