Westside High School, Community Day School and Independent Study





As the Principal at George Christian Education Center I would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 School Year. Westside High School and Community Day School will be functioning in a similar fashion, as in the past, with some small changes in our goals for student achievement and conduct. We will have the expectations of the highest level of success both academically and socially, as well as, personal goals and accomplishments. The faculty and staff are extremely dedicated and committed to student success, community support, and involvement. We are excited about some of the new things coming to our campus which should help students both mentally and physically.


We will be having our first ever MANDATORY Orientation for all students and parent or legal guardians, Monday, August 12 starting at 9:00 am (PLEASE REFER TO SCHEDULE TIMES FOR YOUR CHILDS GRADE LEVEL). Our school year begins on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 at 8:00 am for Westside and 7:40 for Community day unless you ride the Bus.  Parents and students are encouraged to attend the First Day Orientation in Room #2. Please remember that all students are required to attend the 1st time mandatory orientation prior to their enrollment to any of our programs. Students will remain on campus until the end of the day and will be released at 2:45 p.m. Our students are expected to attend school daily. They are picked up by the bus at the Post Office at 7:40 am and are returned to the Post Office at approx. 2:55 pm, except on early release every Wednesday which will be at 1:45 pm. 


I am excited for the upcoming school year and would like to let you know that I can be reached at any time. If you have any questions on any related topic regarding your child’s education, you are more than welcome to come by the campus if you wish to speak to me in person, or you may contact me via phone at (209) 392 – 0280. I am available from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm M-F. In addition, please feel free to contact teacher, if needed, any time between the hours of 7:30 am – 2:30 pm.


We know the staff at George Christian Education Center is willing to help prepare your child for life beyond high school. Teachers, parents, and student all need to work together to help your child realize his/her goals.


Thank you for allowing us to be part of your child’s education!



Sincerely Yours,
