We were climbing out from runway 24 at crq. Tower advised us to extend our upwind to the freeway until turning crosswind. As the student finished turning downwind and initiated a level off, I noticed a tan, straight-tailed small aircraft at our 1 O'clock moving to 12 O'clock position. He appeared to be approximately 300-500' horizontal and 50-100' vertical from us. I took over the controls and started a slight right turn in case the pilot of the small aircraft did not have us in sight and informed the tower that an small aircraft had pass in front of us. The tower tried to contact the small aircraft and received no reply. They told me the small aircraft was an IFR departure and must have been turning early by san departure.

Narrative: WE WERE CLBING OUT FROM RWY 24 AT CRQ. TWR ADVISED US TO EXTEND OUR UPWIND TO THE FREEWAY UNTIL TURNING XWIND. AS THE STUDENT FINISHED TURNING DOWNWIND AND INITIATED A LEVEL OFF, I NOTICED A TAN, STRAIGHT-TAILED SMA AT OUR 1 O'CLOCK MOVING TO 12 O'CLOCK POS. HE APPEARED TO BE APPROX 300-500' HORIZ AND 50-100' VERT FROM US. I TOOK OVER THE CTLS AND STARTED A SLIGHT RIGHT TURN IN CASE THE PLT OF THE SMA DID NOT HAVE US IN SIGHT AND INFORMED THE TWR THAT AN SMA HAD PASS IN FRONT OF US.
