The mission of The Next Step PCS/El Promixo Paso PCS is to provide students who face extraordinary challenges and who are not supported in traditional high schools with the opportunity to continue their education. The Next Step/El Proximo Paso is a bilingual, adult basic education, General Education Development (GED) and English as a Second Language (ESL) program serving students ages 16-24 with full-time day and part-time evening programs. We offer a full academic program in English and Spanish with flexible pacing. Class sizes are small, and student support services are extensive. The curriculum is aligned with Common Core standards and uses individual learning plans, instructional technology, and tutors to accommodate a diverse student body. Students receive guidance to continue their education at community college and vocational programs, and in advanced English courses.
