A Bit About Us

Building a Legacy

ABLE was born of the vision of Wilma Okamoto Vaughn and Dr. Robert Humphreys, Sr. who foresaw a high school to serve the students of greater Stockton in the tradition of Humphreys University. ABLE’s unique blend of a digital learning platform with the best practices of direct instruction sets it apart from other schools. The partnership with Humphreys University allows students to take college coursework to earn college and high school credit, simultaneously.
