Welcome to CALS Early College High School

Now Accepting Applications for the 2016-2017 School Year!

In 2003, the California Academy for Liberal Studies Early College High School was launched to serve grades 9-12. This school was a response to community calls for a high school that offered the same personalized and rigorous learning environment as the middle schools, with the explicit goal of high school graduation and college success for every student. The school design is innovative in two key respects: The first area is the physical location of the school itself. CALS High is situated inside a high-rise office building, on the 3rd and 4th floors, in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. The second is the school's early college high school model (established at all existing and future PUC high schools), which sets a requirement that all students at the school take at least one course each semester at a local community college.

Please note: PUC CALS Charter Middle School and PUC CALS Early College High School are now under one charter petition serving grades 6-12. Therefore 8th grade automatically feeds into 9th grade, as do all other grades in 6-12 under that petition. If you would like to learn more about CALS Charter Middle School, please click here.
