Parenting Teen Programs

Programs Serving Parenting Teens

ACOE operates WASC-accredited school programs for pregnant and parenting teens at two sites, in San Leandro (Hobbs Academy) and Hayward (Burke Academy). Each location includes on-site child care to support students as they complete their high school graduation requirements. Any parenting student in Alameda County is eligible to enroll.

Students may be identified by parents, counselors, nurses, doctors, other students, and local agencies. Referrals for students under 18 can be made by their district of residence.  Students 18 and over can refer themselves.


Carolyn Hobbs and William P. Burke Academies provide academic instruction, support services, and child care for parenting students. Our teachers and staff provide a nurturing learning environment for young parents, as they complete their high school education. In addition to academics, students also have access to curriculum and support services to develop the skills needed to provide a safe and caring environment for themselves and their children.

Support Services:

  • Parenting education and life skills class
  • Prenatal, health, and nutrition education
  • College and career counseling
  • Enrichment and recreational activities
  • Child care and child development
