Grant Program
Your donations fund the APC grant program which provides funding for projects that will enhance the educational experience of AHS students in new and innovative ways. For questions or new grant ideas, please see the Grants page.

Mental Health Intervention Specialists

Along with LPIE, APC funds provide Mental Health Intervention Specialists to assist students and families with short-term counseling on site by licensed Marriage and Family therapists with school experience. Mental Health Intervention Specialists facilitate student support and recovery groups; work with teachers and academic counselors to identify at-risk students, and provide educational presentations for students and parents on topics such as drug abuse prevention and intervention, stress management, and parenting teens.

Teacher Development
A large part of Acalanes success is our hard-working staff. Effective teachers are allowed time to collaborate, working together to calibrate grading rubrics and integrate curriculum. APC provides supplies, stipend pay for collaboration time beyond the school day, and conference fees so teachers can continue learning and working together.

Peer Tutoring
APC donations are hard at work in our Peer Tutoring (PT) Department providing a supportive atmosphere for learning for all Acalanes students, including AP and honors students, students in intervention, special ed, and regular classes. Over 7,500 student tutoring sessions were logged last year thanks to our dedicated Co-Directors and student tutors who foster an environment to help students succeed.

Your time and tax deductible donations allow our continued support of AHS staff, families, and students. Please support us today. Thank you!
