Community Schools

The Community Schools in Santa Maria provide credit-recovery courses and support for students who want to return to and graduate from their schools of residence. We offer voluntary enrollment to students seeking an alternative setting in which they feel they can be more successful, and we serve students who have been expelled or are at risk of expulsion. Our schools also support students who transition from Los Prietos Boys Camp or Santa Barbara County Juvenile Hall to their home schools.

Our main goal is to support the school districts we serve and their students. We make every effort to help students return to their home schools whenever possible. For those who show a need for our continued support, we offer the opportunity to graduate through our schools.

Residential Court Schools

These programs operate for criminal law violators who have been removed from the home by the court. Schools operate within the probation facility.

Residential schools serve students at Los Robles High School at Los Prietos Boys Camp near Lake Cachuma and Santa Maria Juvenile Hall.
