Our Schools

"The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil."  

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

CLCS schools are progressive learning communities that place the learner at the center of the educational process.
We create empowering environments that awaken the seeds of potential within learners and nurture them into flowering.
We go beyond state standards and curriculum, delving into deeper knowledge and understandings to create critical thinkers and lifelong learners.

CLCS manages two public charter schools in Alameda, California.  Though based on a similar model of student empowerment, project-based learning and participation in a democratic community, each school has its own "personality" and culture.

As of Fall 2014, the CLCS offices and ACLC and Nea schools will be operating in our new long-term home at 1900 Third Street in Alameda.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Community Learning Center Schools, Inc. is the nonprofit corporation that manages the 6-12 Alameda Community Learning Center (ACLC) and the K-12 Nea Community Learning Center (Nea), both charter schools in Alameda, California. The CLCS schools are based on an educational model of learner empowerment. CLCS is actively engaged in disseminating this model by school creation and redesign.

CLCS’s mission is to provide corporate leadership, conceptual oversight, and business and legal services to the CLCS charter school Governing Boards. CLCS charter schools serve as educational models that empower all youth to take ownership of their educational experience, to celebrate their diverse community, and to actively participate as members in a democratic society.
