Catapult Academy to Open Student Resource Centers in Southern California

The dropout prevention program will partner with two independent
study charter schools to serve students throughout Los Angeles and San
Diego counties.

CAMDEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Catapult Academy today announced the fall 2015 opening of resource
centers in Los Angeles County and San Diego County, California. In
partnership with two independent study charter schools, the Catapult
Academy program will provide academic, guidance, and support services to
students throughout Southern California.

Catapult Academy serves students who have struggled in traditional
schools and need an alternative solution to complete their education and
earn a high school diploma. Located in student-friendly settings within
the community, the program incorporates instructional best practices and
implements proven intervention strategies through a blended learning
model. Catapult Academy offers a full-service program with flexible
scheduling, college admission guidance, and career coaching. Upon
graduation, students receive a high school diploma.

Andrew Post, Vice President & Superintendent of Schools for Catapult
Academy, explained the value of the resource centers to students as well
as to the surrounding community. “Catapult Academy’s program not only
supports and expands students’ educational opportunities, it also proves
to be an invaluable economic and workforce development tool to the local
communities in which we operate,” said Post. “In collaboration with our
educational and community partners, we are committed to increasing the
number of high school graduates in the neighborhoods we serve.”

As a student resource center for two independent study charter
schools—Community Collaborative Independent Study Charter School,
authorized by the Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District in Los
Angeles County, and the County Collaborative Independent Study Charter
School, authorized by the Mountain Empire Unified School District in San
Diego County—Catapult Academy will serve students throughout these
counties as well as the contiguous counties of Orange, Riverside, San
Bernardino, Imperial, Ventura, and Kern. Working in partnership with
