This article details some of the successes of our program, and the journeys of two former APH students who continue to do great things as they work towards earning their high school diploma. We are so proud of our program, the staff, and the students.

What is the At-Promise House (APH)?

An "At-Promise" student by definition is a “student who may fail to earn a high school diploma for a variety of reasons, including irregular attendance, low motivation, a past record of academic underachievement, economic disadvantage, or low scores on math or English standardized tests."
 
The APH program is a "school-within-a-school" for any CUHSD student that earned 15 credits or less in their 9th grade (Freshman) year, and incoming 9th graders that stuggled in middle school and did not meet promotion criteria.  
 
Students will attend APH core academic classes (English, Math, Science, and Art) with dedicated staff. All APH core classes are much smaller in size, and there is also an Instructional Aide in each of these classes. Electives, PE, and other specialized classes will be taken in regular CUHS classrooms. Students will have the opportunity to accelerate learning or catch up on credits without leaving the comprehensive school. APH students will be able to particpate in all regular CUHS activities, including athletics. Additionally, our APH counselor is dedicated to working solely with APH students in order to be available when needed, and meet their social, emotional, behavioral, and academic needs.
 
APH began Fall 2021, and we are now in our second school year. The majority of our students are Freshmen (class of 2026) this 2022-2023 school year.
