About Us

  • Welcome to YCCPCS, Home of the Bears!


    Are you looking for educational experiences for your child that are unlike anything you’ve seen before? YCCPCS is a unique alternative to the typical school. We focus on students who prefer a more flexible, hands-on, skills-based environment rather than a standard K-8 or high school A-G route.

     As a WASC accredited state charter school, we are able to offer truly individualized education and pathways to career and college. Flexible scheduling and Career Technical Education (CTE) classes which give students real world applicable skills are key aspects of our programs. Did I mention we build hot-rods? YCCPCS is a learning community that values family, and we encourage you to come by the school and see what we are all about. 

    All YCCPCS students are Independent Study (IS) students, but families can choose the level of support their K-12 student needs. A completely home-supported or self-motivated student can succeed in our Traditional IS program where the home environment provides the education. A credentialed teacher guides instruction during an hour meeting on campus with the student each week. Our Traditional IS students also have access on Mondays from 12-4 pm and Tues-Fri 8am-4pm to tutoring services, a computer lab, and our library, which are amenities most programs do not offer. 

    If you realize your student will need more support than what you can offer at home, our 9-12 grade students can choose our Hybrid Cohort program that offers more teacher support than our Traditional IS option. Cohort, CTE, and academic classes allow students to gain essential skills and certifications, via hands-on experience and rigorous coursework.

     At YCCPCS, we ensure the success of our 9-12 students with our Onboarding Program. For three weeks of school, your student will participate in Onboarding for three hours each day Tues-Fri to learn how to be a successful student at YCCPCS. Upon successful completion of Onboarding, your student will transition to the Traditional IS or Cohort Hybrid program.
     
    We are always working to provide the best K-12 alternative educational opportunities in the Yuba County area. Stop by soon or contact us at info@yubacharterschool.org or 530-749-4000 to request a tour. We look forward to meeting you!
