    Community-Based Classroom (CBC) is a FREE school designed for Prince George's County students aged 16-21 who have been withdrawn from their traditional day school program for a variety of reasons.   CBC is apart of the Prince George's County Public Schools’ Area 3 Office.  CBC offers classes, activities, and services that help students finish their high school education.  CBC is a high school program designed to remove the obstacles that might get in the way of students who want to finish high school.  The staff offers not only academic counseling, but also help with personal and practical problems, such as facilitating with jobs and securing social services.  

    CBC offers 2-hour classes during mornings, afternoons, and evenings on a "college" schedule:  Monday-Wednesdays or Tuesday-Thursdays.  Students only come to CBC when they have classes; the rest of the time they may be working or parenting.

    CBC'ers receive a diploma (from CBC) when they finish their high school courses and requirements (not a GED!!).

    At CBC, there is more to an education than earning credits.  A good education should also give a person employment skills and a plan for the future. Therefore, CBC requires all graduates to apply to and obtain viable post-secondary plans to include the university, community college, armed service or work.

    CBC students have access to a computer lab, a 'college corner' center, online courses, computers in each class, and a myriad of technology for a wide variety of applications.  Moreover, there is a business career component to the high school program that can be the key to obtaining a permanent job.
