Teen & Young Adult Services


SCO supports the academic achievement and well-being of young people in all of our programs and we help with college, career preparation, and employment and life skills development. We work with young people to create strong connections to family, community and caring adults. We pay special attention to disconnected and at-risk youth who are homeless, court-involved, LGBTQ, aging out of foster care and young parents. And we offer specialized junior and senior high schools for teens with special needs, developmental disability, or who are under-credited and over age.
