    Welcome to our website! Central High School/Tri-C is the largest Options program in the Los Angeles Unified School District. We provide students with a smaller, more personalized education that focuses on a rigorous, individualized,  standards-based instructional program. We believe that all students have the potential to succeed in the classroom  and in life. To help all of our students reach their potential, we work collaboratively amongst staff, students, and parents to ensure our pupils are provided with instruction that is aligned to current State Standards as well as holding true to our Core Values and Mission. I have an open door policy, so please do not hesitate to contact me any time. Let’s work together for a successful and productive school year!

    About Us

    Central High/Tri-C CDS is a continuous enrollment, alternative education school. We offer 9th-12th grade coursework within two components: Central High School (a continuation school) and Tri-C/CDS (a community day school). We have twenty-eight sites located in communities throughout the Los Angeles Unified School District.

    As a dropout prevention program, Central High/Tri-C is the largest multi-site Educational Options school in LAUSD. Students receive individualized graduation plans, a standards-based A-G curriculum, college counseling, and encouragement to explore career and technical education training in a smaller class environment. Central High also provides a work experience program, serving students who work full-time. These students attend school one night each week for four hours.

    Upon completion of all required classes, students earn a LAUSD high school diploma. Central High/Tri-C was granted a full six-year accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in 2015.
