California Partnership Academy Regionals


As a Lighthouse program, AOAT is a host for the annual fall regional meeting for teams from CPAs in our area. This year’s event was attended by 15 educators and our Sacramento leaders, Jerry Winthrop and Colby Franklin. AOAT was also represented by an Advisory Board member and a parent.

This year’s AOAT Student Ambassadors welcomed and escorted the visitors to the buffet breakfast and presentation. This is a great opportunity for the juniors and seniors to practice their professional conversational skills and promote our program. Thanks, team!

AOAT Hosts Samueli Academy


Samueli Academy, a Public Charter High School in Santa Ana that focuses on engineering and design pathways, visited Cleveland High School to learn about AOAT, and how our California Partnership Academy operates. Our Student Ambassadors gave them a tour of our campus and provided them with an introduction to what our learning community is all about. Our Coordinators and Lead Teachers hosted a lunch session to answer questions and mentor their team in planning curriculum connections. Connecting with other schools also helps us think about ways to enhance AOAT.

On Wednesday, the first Peer Mentor Meeting was held in A-2 and A-3. Students from every grade came and participated, mentors and mentees. A workshop was provided where the mentees got to talk to some of the mentors and interact with them. Overall, many more students showed up than last year’s launch which shows great involvement. Mentor meetings are every Wednesdays in A-2.
