Clinical counseling staff provide individual and group sessions for students in need.
In the 2015-16 school year, PUC Triumph Charter High School was merged under PUC Triumph Charter Academy to ensure a continuous education in grades 6-12 in the same school. That same year, the school moved into our beautiful new PUC Sylmar Education Complex in Sylmar. The facility has a beautiful field, gymnasium, and theatre in addition to large, state of the art classrooms. PUC Triumph Charter Academy and PUC Triumph Charter High School shares our outstanding new campus with PUC Lakeview Charter High School.
