Our Story

The story of CLC Schools began in the 1991-92 school year, when the Alameda Unified School District, in collaboration with accounting firm Arthur Andersen, held a series of community conferences to envision the future of public education.

This conference sought to break the mold of traditional education and create an innovative educational model that would provide students with the qualities and skills they would need to succeed in 21st century communities and workplaces.
