Barbara Cardwell Career Preparatory Center, along with our community, will encourage high levels of learning for all students through positive relationships and rigorous instruction.
We will meet every student where they are and build individualized plans for future success.
Barbara Cardwell Career Preparatory Center is also known as Cardwell Prep. We serve students who are seeking an non-traditional schooling environment. Our school offers a small personalized environment and flexible school hours from 8:30am to 4:00pm.
Our School is composed of two student programs: Grad LAB and House.
Our House is composed of 9th through 12th graders and is our largest population of students. These students have the typical 8 period day schedule with late arrival or early release as an option for qualifying students. These students complete the House Bill 5 Foundation High School Program and are able to receive endorsements.
Our Grad LAB program is computer-based digital instruction for students who need to complete a few credits to graduate and require a half day program. This program is for 12th graders.
Cardwell Prep also houses the District's Compensatory Education Home Instruction (CEHI) Classroom which is a part of the Teen Pregnancy and Parenting Students (TAPPS) program. CEHI is offered during her maternity leave, the six weeks after the delivery. Instruction is provided by a certified teacher, known as the CEHI instructor, 4 hours per week for most students.
