The Scholarship Program was established in 2004. Graduating high school students from selected alternative education programs which participated in our Competencies for Independent Living Program were offered an opportunity to apply for a scholarship to a college or trade school.
The Scholarship Program now includes five continuation high schools in Placer County, including Confluence and Maidu in Auburn, Adelante, and Independence in Roseville, and Victory in Rocklin. We also offer scholarships to students with high school diplomas or the equivalent from Koinonia Family Services, a drug rehabilitation program in Loomis. All students for this program as well as students from the above-mentioned continuation high schools have often had challenging life circumstances, but are very motivated to pursue post-high school training and education. They are referred to us by their high school staff and by other community leaders.
