EPAPA and BeyondHere at East Palo Alto Charter School and East Palo Alto Phoenix Academy, we do more than provide education. We instill a love of learning in our students so that they can carry on with their goals and dreams beyond our school doors. Here are success stories of several alumni who have continued on to private high schools. Next year we are looking forward to having this page include anecdotes and success stories from the Class of 2010, our first graduating class.
Thanks to the Harvard Club of Silicon Valley and the Junior League of Palo Alto-Mid-Peninsula, EPACS students receive help in preparing their private school applications. In 2006, more than 30 8th graders worked with volunteers to refine their essays and fill out forms. Many of this year's graduating 8th graders will be continuing on at EPACS for 9th grade, but we also have students who will be attending Castilleja, St. Francis, East Side Prep, Sacred Heart, and others.
If you are an EPAPA alumni, we'd love to hear from you. Send us an update on your current contact info and what you are doing to .
