The Acalanes Center for Independent Study (ACIS) is the newest school in the Acalanes Union High School District, located in Walnut Creek (District). In 2004, Del Oro High School, the District’s continuation high school, and its independent research program were split up. With the closing of Del Oro High School in 2010-11, ACIS became the last alternative high school.
ACIS serves students from the Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, and Walnut Creek suburban areas who attend one of the District’s four integrated high schools: Acalanes, Campolindo, Las Lomas, and Miramonte.
Parents in these areas are largely employed in specialized fields, have strong aspirations for their teachers, are involved partners in their children’s education, and are generous in their financial contributions to the District.
Based on API ratings, the Acalanes Union High School District was ranked first among California high school districts in 2010.
Both students at ACIS are enrolled in a college preparatory program. The University of California’s “a-g” standards are met by ACIS courses.
Students have a limited number of elective courses to choose from, whether they can participate in adult education, ROP, or community college classes at the same time.
The Acalanes Center for Independent Study (ACIS) High School’s mission is to provide a guided curriculum featuring independent and small group learning for students with nontraditional educational desires and needs to excel in meeting their academic goals.
ACIS graduates will be self-directed learners who take ownership of their personal and academic objectives.
