Teen Parent Program


The Teen Parent Program is located on the Poway High School campus.  It meets the  unique needs of pregnant and parenting teens by providing them with the opportunity to continue to work towards a high school diploma.  The Center is a fully equipped, learning environment designed to assist pregnant teens, teen parents and their babies.



The same curriculum that is required and used in the traditional schools is used in the Teen Parent Program based upon:

  • PUSD Academic Standards
  • California State Standards
  • California State Frameworks
  • Stanford-9 standardized test objectives as prescribed by the state of California


Students meet one-on-one with a credentialed teacher during regularly scheduled weekly appointments.  New Directions individualized learning plans are prepared and require independent completion.


Students work on 1-2 lessons at a time.   Students may also take classes not offered by New Directions such as physical education, advanced math, and science labs on the Poway High School campus.


The ultimate goal is to continue the education of these young men and women and prepare them and their children for success in school and society.
