It is inspiring to look back at our humble beginnings and reflect on the tens of thousands of young people we helped to graduate. We started with just one school serving 30 students and now have 47,000+ students per year across 80+ locations.
In 2001, two businessmen in Lancaster, Calif., were approached by a local teacher with an idea for an innovative new way to teach kids. This groundbreaking school would help students overcome the obstacles that prevent many of them from being successful in high school. The model we have refined and perfected over the years combines personalized learning, flexibility and workforce readiness, all enhanced with trauma-informed practices.
The traditional school model doesn’t work for everyone, so for 20 years we’ve been educating students with a customized program that meets their needs. We thank our dedicated staff, many community partners, and students and their families who allow us to offer a quality high school education to every student. Here’s to the next 20 years!
