Rebound, CCHS's adult/optional education
program, has been in existence since 1970. The
primary purpose of Rebound is to assist persons
16 years of age and over in their attainment of
a secondary education credential. Students who
have formally dropped out of traditional school
complete their high school diploma requirements
at Rebound, or they prepare to take the General
Educational Development (GED) examination.
Currently enrolled traditional school students
who have failed classes use the program as an
avenue for making up deficient credits so that
they can graduate on time. Traditional high school students may be
less than 16 years of age; they must have failed
a high school level class.
Rebound is staffed by an experienced group of professionals who are successful at dealing with troubled youth. Counselors and teachers work closely with students, families, and social service agencies in order to provide successful educational experiences. Staff assist all students in setting and attaining educational goals and in exploring, identifying, and planning realistic career pathways. Rebound offers morning, afternoon, and evening sessions during the school year and daytime sessions during the summer. Approximately 100 students are generally enrolled at any given time, and the program serves about 450 students each year. More than 100 students complete their secondary education through Rebound annually.
