Charles A. Jones is a commuter school, with no students living on campus. Most courses begin every six weeks. Because most of the students work at least part-time, evening classes are available.

The center is located in California’s capital city of Sacramento. While not the tourist magnet of other Golden State cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, or San Diego, students who attend Charles A. Jones do not need to go far to enjoy great art or entertainment. The Crocker Art Museum, the oldest public art museum west of the Mississippi River, features collections of Asian, European, American, and California art. Sacramento also boasts a vibrant theatre scene, with both large and small venues hosting national and local performances.

Sports fans can cheer on the NBA’s Sacramento Kings at Arco Arena, as well as the Sacramento River Cats, a minor league affiliate of the baseball’s Oakland Athletics. The River Cats play at Raley Field, an impressive stadium built in 2000. And for those who want to see the big leaguers play—or for those just in a big city mood—the Oakland-San Francisco metro area is only a two-hour drive away.

Student Enrollment Demographics


Accreditation is granted by the Western Association for Schools and Colleges – Accrediting Commission for Schools. The school also has partnerships with the AARP, Department of Child Support Services, Sacramento Training Employment Program, Calpro, and the Army National Guard.
