Alternative Education serves students enrolled in one of SJCOE’s court or community schools, all of which are accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The program enables students to become productive members of the community by providing quality learning opportunities. Students complete a course of study resulting in a high school diploma, certificate of completion, or GED, as well as develop individual talents, critical thinking and problem solving skills, workforce readiness, and an appreciation of themselves and others.

Alternative Education uses an integrated, thematic approach to instruction. Subjects are integrated in an effort to make learning more relevant and help students retain information more efficiently. Lessons, assignments, and projects are centered on quarterly themes that bring continuity to the learning experience through rigor, relevance, and relationships.
