"Happiness lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort."

—Franklin Delano Roosevelt

ACLC and Nea's graduation rates and percentage of graduating seniors accepted into 4-year colleges is consistently the highest in Alameda.

4-year colleges — The list of 4-year colleges and universities to which ACLC and Nea grads are accepted (and often receive scholarships) is a "Who's Who" of the "best" and "best fit" from the Ivy League to the Big 10 and Pac 10 to prestigious and selective private and public smaller schools.

Purposeful academic counseling — Our on-staff academic counselors ensure that learners pursue comprehensive and relevant academic programs during their middle school and high school years, with maximum experiential, enrichment and community service opportunities along the way. Our counselors help learners plan their future with an awareness of their potential as well as their passion.

Real college experience — Real college experience is one of the reasons that college admissions offices look so favorably on transcripts from CLC Schools.  Instead of Advanced Placement (AP) classes promoted by typical "college-prep" high schools, ALL graduates from CLC Schools are required to have completed at least one college class. However, most have taken numerous college classes by the time they graduate, proving with certainty their ability to succeed at the college level.

Independence and confidence — Our graduates exhibit impressive self-direction, independence and resourcefulness, already applying their talents and pursuing their passions as they enter colleges where they naturally attain high levels of academic performance and contribution to their community.
