• Community and Location

    Located in the beautiful hills of Contra Costa County, the family-oriented communities of Canyon, Moraga, Lafayette, Orinda and Walnut Creek are within the Acalanes Union High School District attendance area. We serve students in grades 9-12 and have an extensive adult education program. The area is ethnically, culturally and politically diverse with each of our four communities having a strong local identity that fosters positive interactions among adults and students. The communities provide a wealth of cultural, entertainment and recreational opportunities.

    Acalanes, Campolindo, Las Lomas, and Miramonte High Schools all rank in the top 60 of the 1,000 high schools in California based upon the Academic Performance Index (API) and the top 4% of all high schools in the United States for strength of the Advanced Placement Program. The Acalanes Center for Independent Study offers an exceptional alternative education program. All the schools in the district are fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

    Parents and Community

    The Acalanes Union High School District is considered one of the highest performing school districts in California. Parent participation and support is provided with volunteer hours and fund-raising through parents and boosters organizations, and foundations. The community passed bond elections in 1988, 1997, 2002, and 2008 to improve District facilities; and passed parcel taxes in 1991, 1995, 2001, 2005, 2009, 2010, and 2014 to maintain or expand educational opportunities for the students of the District.
