Chowchilla Union High School District provides an alternative setting for students who are recommended from Chowchilla Union High School who need an Independent setting. Independent Study Students agree by a signed contract to continue their educational purposes and goals of ultimately earning their high school diploma. Students enrolled in Independent Studies have the same requirements to meet as any student in the district. However, students enrolled in Independent Studies are removed from the A-G requirements and cannot enroll in a 4 year college program directly after high school. The Alternative Education Center is located on the corner of Trinity and 5th street in Chowchilla, California.
