Charter schools were created to innovatively address the nation’s educational challenges. East Palo Alto Academy embraces the full spirit of this mandate, welcoming students with a wide range of achievement and needs. By high school’s end, our students have taken ownership of their own learning and their own futures. With careful project-based, student-centered programming based on validated research and delivered by skilled and caring professionals, we consistently graduate more than 90% of our seniors and send the vast majority of those graduates on to higher education. In June 2013, EPAA proudly graduated 100% of its high school seniors.
