Central Bay High School is a small continuation high school that is designed for students who are 16 years of age and older and are at risk of not receiving a high school diploma because of a lack of credits, attendance issues, and/or other issues. At Central Bay, we believe it is our role to help students become productive citizens who will contribute positively to their communities. Central Bay staff are fully committed and focused on our main objective - to prepare all students for graduation. We offer intervention classes that help students pass the California High School Exit Exam. Our instructional program addresses the California State Standards and fulfills State and District requirements for earning a high school diploma. We offer academic counseling, mental health counseling, teen parent support, and career and vocational guidance services as an integral part of our program. Central Bay High School is WASC accredited.

School-Wide Learner Outcomes
Choose Your Path
Students reflect on their personal strengths and challenges and then make deliberate choices towards meeting their goals.
Build Healthy Relationships
Students use interpersonal skills to work collaboratively and to strategically foster caring and respectful relationships at school, at work, and at home.
High School Diploma
Students work towards a high school diploma as a signal of their commitment to learning and an understanding of core knowledge and skills to serve as a basis for future learning.
Skills for Success
Students master basic reading, writing, and math skills, as they develop the creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills required to “work at jobs that do not yet exist, creating ideas and solutions for products and problems that have not yet been identified, using technologies that have not yet been invented”.
