    Principal Helene Cameron

    Welcome to our website. Central High/Tri-C is committed to supporting our students and families during these unusual and trying times. We wish you and your family both good health and safety.

    By now, all students should have heard from their teachers, who are providing assignments and support to help you continue your education. Although the coursework may be different than what you are accustomed to, we aim to ensure that every Central High/Tri-C student receives grade-level instruction in all subject areas.

    We will be posting the latest school news and instructional content on this website. Parents, if you need to reach your student’s teacher, feel free to email me directly and I will  make sure you connect with them.

    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 have full-time employment. These students attend school one night each week for four hours per session.

    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. We were named a California Model Continuation School in 2020.
