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.
Evening classes are being offered at the CAC!
Culinary Arts with instructor Vrinda Quintero takes place every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at our Sequoia Schools kitchen. Students can earn credits for electives and other core subjects. Vrinda is also offering a new component to the Culinary Arts class called Garden to Table, every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Garden to Table explores decolonizing and reclaiming indigenous foods while empowering students to build their own identity and agency. Along with knife skills, the importance of language and emotional fluency is highlighted. An emphasis is also placed on food as medicine and the importance of our eating habits and their impact on our communities (worker rights) and environment (climate change). This is a bilingual course in English and Spanish.
The CAC is excited to begin offering English as a Second Language (ESL) Evening classes every Wednesday and Thursday from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Students can earn English credits for attending.
If a CAC student is interested in attending an evening class, childcare is available at no cost! Childcare is available for children up to 8 years of age every Monday through Thursday from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at our South County location.
