Progressive Leadership Academy (formerly Charles Houston High School) offers students opportunities to get back on track by completing classes needed to get a high school diploma.
Youth Connection Charter School advocates, develops & provides world-class education to students at-risk & high school dropouts. YCCS meets the individual needs of students through programs committed to academic excellence, human development, cultural enrichment, and social equity. YCCS prepares students for quality life experiences, technological literacy, graduation, vocational and post-secondary education, and competitive employment.
The YCCS Community believes in providing the resources that our students need to continue on the path of learning. Health concerns all of us and we work hard to connect our students and bridge the gap and getting them access to the quality health care that they need. We also believe that child care is a necessity, and our network of resources can assist you so that you won't have to choose between caring for family and going to school.
PLA provides its students with a world-class education in an urban setting. Our curriculum provides an opportunity for YCCS students to graduate with a diploma and confidence to demonstrate their mastery of the core competencies that are essential for academic and personal success. Every student is prepared for college, careers and beyond.
They offered a support system that gave me the confidence I needed, it was my last chance to have a diploma.
Progressive Leadership Academy helped me to stay focused at a time when I had a lot of problems on my shoulders.
The staff was very friendly, supportive and I liked the non-traditional school vibe.
I left High School because we were out of the district, and no school would accept me because it was so late in the year, until I learned about YCCS.
