Coliseum College Prep Academy is dedicated to providing all of our students with a challenging and relevant education that prepares them for entry to UC and CSU schools and an evolving, technology-driven world. Students will leave Coliseum Prep with the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue their vision for the future and confident in their ability to do so. We are committed to delivering a program that meets each learner's unique needs, capitalizes on their passions, connects their learning to the real world, and requires students to demonstrate what they know and are able to do. CCPA's academic program is divided into three divisions, each with a distinct purpose and a corresponding structure to support that purpose. Division 1 (sixth and seventh grades) has a goal of rapid academic growth. To support our goal of every student on grade level by eighth grade, our Division 1 students loop with the same teachers for two years to build meaningful relationships. They also participate in a mandatory extended day until 5pm for intense academic support. Division 2 (eighth through tenth grades) is a traditional secondary school structure, with an emphasis on college preparation. Starting with Algebra 1 and either Spanish or Espanol Para Hispanohablantes (EPH) in eighth grade, our Division 2 students begin the California State University/University of California A-G requirements. Extended day academic support is also offered for our Division 2 students until 4pm. Our English and Math departments use the College Board's "Springboard" curriculum to ensure rigorous instruction. Division 3 students (eleventh and twelfth grades) may participate in our "Make the Road" program on a modified half-day schedule. They have the option of taking CSU/UC transferable courses at junior college, participating in a professional internship, and/or taking on a community leadership role. The goal of Division 3 is to successfully transition our students into college and/or career by initiating that process in a safe and supportive environment while building competitive college resumes and strong community leaders.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
