Shelter 37 has teamed up with College Bridge Academy to open the newest addition to it’s family of schools!

College Bridge Academy

This FREE public school is open to 17-25 year old students who are seeking a high school diploma in a professional and compassionate learning environment.

Credits can be attained quickly and there is support every step of the way!

The curriculum includes classes needed to earn a California high school diploma as well as the popular Aspiring Leaders life skills class, that so many young people rave about.

College guidance, tutoring, job training, mental health support, and financial literacy are also integral parts of our program!

  • We serve 16 to 24-year-old youth who come to us for a second chance at a high school diploma and applicable work experience that will make them competitive for living wage jobs.
  • Academic instruction at Shelter 37’s high school involves small classes of 15-20 students who study the required core subjects needed to pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) including mathematics, English (reading and writing), science, history, computer technology and a number of elective courses (e.g., economics, speech, government or foreign language).
  • Skill development includes critical thinking and analytical processes which are necessary for future success, and which cannot be attained in a GED program.
  • Intensive mental health support and guidance is provided by Shields for Families to address the root causes of issues that impact our students lives and that interferes with their ability to be successful in a classroom and in higher education.
