Academic Programs Delta has three different programs to meet students' academic and scheduling needs. Within each program is the opportunity for flexibility and individualized learning. Our small class sizes (15:1), skilled educators, full-time tutors, and attentive resource staff provide students with the support they need to thrive and succeed. Direct Instruction (DI):Most like traditional schools, DI offers a variety of classroom-based courses with subject-specific content designed to maximize credit earnings towards graduation. Guided Studies (GS): GS is a classroom-based independent study course from 9:20 - 1:15 designed to help students focus on credit-earning and receive one-on-one tutorial support. GS students can take Cabrillo classes as well as Friday classes if there is space. Independent Studies (IS): IS is a fully independent program, which requires students to complete 20 hours of work per week outside of Delta, keep detailed timecards of their work and meet 2 - 3 times per week to discuss their progress with the instructor on campus.
Dual Enrollment at Cabrillo Students seeking an accelerated path or just want experience with college-level work are fully supported in taking Cabrillo classes. From the application process all the way through final exams, our Lead Teacher of College & Career and advisors are here to help them navigate higher education in a safe and supportive environment. See our Cabrillo Admission tab for more information.
