APC Spring Grants Announcement

APC had approved $10,000 in spring grants through our grant application process. With your support, the Wellness Center will now have an outside garden area, the attendance office will be able to get a much-needed renovation/update and all can look forward to an election simulation in the future. The APC could not provide these grants without your support and we thank you!
 See the Grants page for the list of grants. 

Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutoring is a great campus resource, supported entirely by Acalanes Parents Club, for students to take advantage of to get academic help from trained peer tutors or a quiet space to get homework done. If your student drops by once, they’re likely to take advantage of it going forward. You can’t beat free tutoring (and yummy snacks)!

All APC Donors: if you weren’t able to pick up your copy at Back to School Night, please visit the Registrar's Desk in the Counseling Office to pick one up. All parents that donate to APC become members and qualify to receive an APC Directory. More information
