To meet the demands of this new century, it is imperative for our student citizens to be able to analyze college-level text, produce professional and research-based writing, create complex solutions to our industry partners’ problems, and work collaboratively within diverse groups.
At the Center for Advanced Learning, we challenge our students with demanding college-level coursework, internships to apply their coursework knowledge to the workplace, and opportunities to obtain up to 16 transferable, college credits (for a nominal, one-time fee) while completing their high school diploma.
Our global community is depending on our students’ achievements and their intellectual character. Our students are counting on us – as a community of partners, parents, and educators - to challenge them, listen to them, and to never give up on their abilities to achieve their dreams. At the Center for Advanced Learning, we believe it is our moral responsibility to help make that a reality.

Due to a district-wide In-Service for GBSD school staff, on Friday, September 26, 2014, no classes will be held in GBSD schools. Reynolds and Centennial classes, however, will be in session on 9/26.
CAL will have a regularly scheduled day of classes, and students are expected to be at CAL on Friday 9/26. Without buses or other means of transportation, however, if a student cannot attend CAL, the student will need to initiate our attendance process for a pre-arranged absence, which also requires a parent/guardian to excuse the absence by phone, email or a signed note the following school day.
We understand the inconvenience and challenge for our families. We hope to see all of our students on 9/26.×
How to find out about emergency school closures
In the event of a school closure, CAL will share the information with families and the community through a variety of methods:
Our goal is to share closure information no later than 6am.
