At Alliance, we have high expectations for our 13,000 scholars regardless of their previous academic results. Meeting those high expectations requires hard work on behalf of our scholars and individualized attention from our educators. We believe every child can learn and throughout our history and across our 25 schools, we have been proven right - exceptional can be the rule in public education.
We are committed to providing quality schools in our communities. In order to ensure or scholars are college-ready by the time they graduate high school we offer the equivalent of 38 more school days per year than neighboring schools, more counselors, smaller class sizes, after-school tutoring, Advanced Placement classes and SAT prep support.
100% of Alliance scholars graduate with the requirements to apply to UC and CSU colleges and 95% of Alliance graduates are accepted to college. Our scholars are often the first in their family to graduate from a four-year college and changing their future trajectory while inspiring others in their community and future generations. The staff at Alliance is energized by the impact of our success, and inspired by the incredible potential of continuing our work.
This spring, U.S. News & World Report ranked 15 Alliance high schools among the top of the nation. Of those ranked, six are in the top 100 in California. Alliance schools are also recognized by the California Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Education among the best in the nation with accolades including the California Distinguished School awards, California Gold Ribbon Award for Academic Excellence and the National Blue Ribbon, considered the highest honor a school can receive.
