The Acalanes College and Career Center serves the entire student population of Acalanes High School in collaboration with the AUHSD school district and its fellow school sites. The purpose is to provide resources for all students in their preparation for life after high school. Whether that includes a four year or two year college, the military, technical training or a gap year, the AHS CCC aims to provide students with a place to research, share and learn how to pursue their goals.
