The Career Advancement Charter (CAC) is an Independent Study program for adult learners to earn their high school diploma while gaining academic and technical skills that will lead to college and career readiness.
The CAC is proud to partner with the Watsonville Public Library, INEA (Instituto Nacional para la Educación de los Adultos) and the Mexican Consulate to offer free basic skills education classes in Spanish, known as Plaza Comunitaria, to our community. Classes have started and are currently being offered at the Watsonville Public Library (Monday and Wednesday evenings) and at Sequoia Schools (Tuesday and Thursday evenings). Our Community Organizers are actively connecting with the community and recruiting students who will benefit from this program.
PSC South County
The CAC is expanding on our partnership with the Probation Success Center (PSC) by providing our high school diploma program now in South County. We will have an independent studies teacher supporting South County students at the new Watsonville Success Center. Our regular programming will continue with the help of our teacher and support staff.
Dual Enrollment success
The CAC remains committed to increasing accessibility to a variety of educational opportunities and support services for our adult students. With the support of GOAL, the CAC has successfully enrolled interested students into Cabrillo’s dual enrollment program for the fall semester. Our transition specialist continues to support all of our students with career readiness and college transition services.
