Graduation & College Acceptance Rates
ACLC's graduation rates and the percentage of graduating seniors enrolled in 4-year colleges is consistently the highest in Alameda.
The list of colleges to which ACLC grads have been accepted (and often receive scholarships) is a who's who of the best North American colleges and universities, from the Ivy League to the Big 10 to the Pac 10 to prestigious and selective smaller schools.
Our on-staff academic and admissions counselors ensure that learners pursue comprehensive and relevant academic programs during their middle school and high school years, with maximum enrichment and community service opportunities along the way.
Instead of the Advanced Placement (AP) classes promoted by many "college prep" high schools, ALL seniors graduating from CLCS schools are required to have completed at least one class taken at a local college. Most have taken numerous college classes by the time they graduate, thereby proving with certainty their readiness for success at the collegiate level.
Real college experience is one of the reasons that college admissions offices look so favorably on a transcript from ACLC. Many graduates have already received far more real college credit than AP courses and tests can possibly provide.
Our graduates exhibit impressive independence and resourcefulness, applying their talents and pursuing their passions to colleges where they naturally attain high levels of academic performance.
An astounding 20% of our graduating class of 2011 was accepted to the University of California—Berkeley, with one of the most competitive admissions rates in the state.
Here are some of the prestigious schools that have accepted our graduates:
