Rancho Cielo Scholars

New to our program is a separate track, RC Scholars, geared for those students (aged 16-24) who are not inclined to participate in the vocational training portion of the program or may be waiting for a spot in one of the Academies. Students work exclusively in a classroom setting, working towards attainment of a High School Diploma. The Certificated Teachers are with the WASC-accredited John Muir Charter School.
