Alsion offers a three year program of education especially designed to meet the academic and social needs of adolescents (ages 12 through 15.) While Alsion covers grades 7, 8, and 9, the School has the teaching expertise and resources to advance motivated students well beyond the California standards for these grade levels.
Alsion's Early College program enables our students to earn two years of college credit at Ohlone College and a high school diploma from Alsion after 9th grade.
