Acalanes Community Always (ACA)


Acalanes Community Always is a partnership between all facets of Acalanes and the greater Lafayette community. ACA’s success is dependent on a wide array of AHS students, teachers and admin, class liaisons, and parent volunteers. From Acalanes Leadership students to ACA Support Partners (APC, APAB, Acalanes Boosters, and LPIE), the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, the City of Lafayette, and our wonderful restaurants and businesses, thanks to all of YOU for embracing ACA!!! Can’t wait for what comes out of this partnership in the next school year. !

The AHS Community Can’t Be Canceled campaign, initially created last spring by Acalanes Leadership, was a successful effort to generate spirit and a great sense of belonging between Acalanes and the greater Lafayette community during Shelter in Place and beyond.

From “Let’s Paint This Town Blue” to the Senior Car Rally and all the individual class spirit efforts in between, it helped to pull us together. Going forward, ACA • Acalanes Community Always will replace this effort and we hope you’ll join this Acalanes Parents Club effort and get involved!

You can show your Dons pride by flying a new AHS flag to welcome in the new 2020-21 school year. Click here to buy one and pick up at Dons Days.
