    • Providing an innovative educational option for students seeking a high school diploma while starting the work towards a future career pathway
    • Personal teacher/mentors to assist each student
    • College classes embedded into schedule
    • 50% of classes are college, but with personalized teacher supports
    • Individualized graduation plans
    • Free college tuition
    • Free college textbooks and use of career tools/supplies in college laboratory setting
    • Strengthening a students' transition from high school to college or the workforce while still under the guidance of high school staff
    • Real-world relevant curriculum in classes (transfers knowledge to real world applications)
      • Example Math: students apply math using UC Davis' CSTEM robotics, Virtual Reality simulations, and other real world applications.
