Each youth is required to participate in school daily. The educational needs are provided by the Yuba County Office of Education. Harry P. B. Carden Court School (Carden School), is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).  Carden School provides an alternative learning program for incarcerated students.  The primary goal of the school is to help students succeed academically and to successfully return to public school upon their release.  Teacher directed learning, group and individual assignments, oral recitation, health classes, computer classes and arts are infused into thematic lessons.  Special Education services are provided by classroom teachers under the guidance of a Resource Teacher who also works individually with students.   

Individualized Education Plans, commonly referred to as an IEP, are initiated and followed during a Camp Singer commitment. Staff realize many of the youth committed to Camp Singer are severely credit deficient. As such, Camp Singer has a requirement the youth earn high school credits (where applicable) in order to promote through the program.  Youth who have graduated high school are afforded the opportunity to enroll in Yuba College.
