Building Futures Academy Charter School

At YBSJ, students attend school four days a week for 9-12 months through the Building Futures Academy Charter School (BFA) under the San Joaquin County Office of Education. The charter school runs on a traditional school schedule from August-May. Students work in alternating rotations of education and hands-on training with the goal of gaining construction skills and earning their high school diploma. Classes are small and dynamic. BFA requires that students complete 135 credits, complete 75 hours of community service or work experience, and complete a culminating project called a YBG. Students that complete these education requirements will earn their high school diploma.
