HBA Partners

High Bluff Academy offers high school courses for credit online and in-person at locations throughout California. HBA has developed partnerships with existing educational centers whose role is to manage the marketing, enrollment process and the day-to-day operations of HBA classes. The teachers at these centers are hired in conjunction with HBA’s Director Jill Duoto. They undergo training and are supervised through Zoom meetings, learning management software and with conversations with the local management teams. Each location sets its own prices and determines the class schedule. 

The following locations have been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges as official HBA satellite campuses. Below is information about the partner organizations who manage each location.
