Recognition for Century High School, A Model Continuation School

Century High School has been identified as one of 29 continuation high schools in the State recognized as Model Continuation High Schools by the California Department of Education.

Model schools are recognized for providing comprehensive services to youth through the use of exemplary instructional strategies, flexible scheduling, and guidance and counseling services to students who may otherwise have been at risk of not graduating.

“These outstanding schools provide teaching approaches that better serve their students and give them every chance to flourish,” said Tom Torlakson, the state superintendent of public instruction. “Our goal is to ensure that every student receives a high-quality education and, upon graduation, that every student has a plan for the future and the skills necessary to succeed.”

According to the Department of Education, continuation high schools meet the needs of students aged 16 years or older who lack sufficient school credits to graduate. Students benefit from supplemental programs and services like independent study courses, career counseling, job placement, apprenticeships, and concurrent enrollment in community college.
