National University Academy, a public, tuition-free charter school, and the Career Institute offer a program for students who wish to complete their high school diplomas or GED in Big Bear, Lake Arrowhead and San Bernardino. School opens Aug. 27.
Classes will be offered at the Career Institute sites in Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead, and a third location will operate at National University’s San Bernardino campus.
Students ages 18 to 24 who do not have a high school diploma or GED can enroll. Curriculum will be delivered via a hybrid model of online and on-site work, using multiple delivery options. Classes are UC and NCAA approved. All teachers are fully credentialed by the California Commission on Teacher Credentials.
National University Academy is an independent study program accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and has been in operation for three years.
The Career Institute is a Career, Education and Life Planning Company. The institute’s mission is to help young adults make the transition into adulthood. This is accomplished through the framework of the federally funded Workforce Investment Act and under the direction of the county of San Bernardino’s Workforce Development Department. The company has an 18-year track record of working with young adults and seeks community partnerships to accomplish its goals.
Students study in the fields of Certified Nursing Assistant, Hospitality Management, Auto Mechanics and Small Business Development. The two-year program assists them with customer service knowledge, personal finance, work readiness, and most importantly helps them find work through paid and unpaid work experience.
