I am happy to welcome Sutter County Career Training Center, the former Cambridge Junior College, to the Sutter County Superintendent of Schools family. Career technical education for adults is a vital part of our mission. Acquiring a strong for-profit college is a first-of-its-kind initiative for a county superintendent of schools. Through the success of this venture, we hope to expand educational opportunities for adults in California.
SCSOS has acquired Cambridge Junior College’s institutional operations and assets at the Yuba City campus, including curriculum, students, employees, and over two decades of experience in career technical education. All existing Cambridge Junior College students and most faculty have transitioned to the new Sutter County Career Training Center. It will be distinct from other programs within the SCSOS Office. Pending regulatory approval, students will have access to CalGrants, veteran’s benefits, and Title IV student financial aid, a federal program administered by the U.S. Department of Education.
In addition to providing services in Sutter County to more than 20,000 public school students, 12 school districts and nine charter schools, SCSOS currently provides adult education; including English as a Second Language, Special Education, high school diplomas and high school equivalency; and job services through the Sutter County One Stop and Sutter County Adult Education programs. These existing programs connect adults with education, job training and employment opportunities. The new Sutter County Career Training Center has become a vital level in the SCSOS system giving students access to an accredited Medical Assistant program, with additional programs planned to launch in the coming years.
