ABOUT CAPITAL CITY SCHOOL
Capital City School is a K-12 SCUSD school that offers independent study as its primary mode of instruction. Enrollment at CCS is voluntary. Students from every school in the district are eligible to attend CCS if they choose to do so.
Students typically meet individually with their CORE teacher at least once a week at the school site to correct and review homework and to receive instruction and new assignments. Students also might be assigned to a variety of additional classes/labs, depending upon their needs. Some of these assignments include CAHSEE (California High School Exit Exam) Math, CAHSEE English/Language Arts, Math Support, P. E., and Technology. Parents and guardians are always welcome to accompany their students to appointments. Also, if students need additional help, they may reach their teachers by phone or come to the school for more assistance. Likewise, parents may call their child's teacher during school hours to discuss their student's progress or any other concerns they may have regarding their child's experience at CCS.
Our teachers are NCLB highly qualified , and our support staff is comprised of highly qualified individuals as well. The CCS staff works continuously as a team to implement the elements necessary for our school environment to comply with the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).
CCS offers all of the courses that meet the SCUSD requirements for a high school diploma. Likewise, our curriculum is based on the California State Content Standards, and we are working to align our lessons with the new Common Core E/LA, Social Science, Science and Technology Standards. Because of our efforts to meet the academic needs of all of our students through a variety of instructional intervention and support strategies, we also enjoy a Westeren Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) six-year accreditation.
