    ACOE’s new Opportunity Academy School serves students ages 16 and over who have previously separated from school or have been unsuccessful in school, desire a high school diploma, and will benefit from support with employment readiness and obtaining employment.

    Opportunity Academy utilizes an independent studies format with blended learning models; incorporating computer-based curriculum, small group instruction, independent and classroom-based study options.

    Opportunity Academy School, in partnership with Youth Employment Partnership (YEP), in Oakland, an organization providing Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act-funded services to similar populations, will provide an environment that encourages student growth and success in and out of the classroom.
