The GVCC partners with the Come Back Kids Academy to assist our corps members by giving them a second chance to earn a high school diploma.

Come Back Kids (CBK) is a free, mostly online educational program that is offered through the San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE) that can help anyone 18 years and older earn their high school diploma.

CBK is an independent study program that allows individuals the opportunity to complete the necessary coursework to obtain a high school diploma through flexible, individualized schedules.

This program will help adults who have wanted to advance in their jobs or education but have found that not having a high school diploma has held them back. CBK is offered through the SJCOE's one.Charter Academies.

Come Back Kids offers seven program locations in Lodi, Stockton, Lathrop and Tracy.
