“We’re taking back our futures.” That’s how the girls at Aviva High School describe how their lives have changed. Many of our students first arrive with negative feelings about school, with histories of multiple failures, suspensions and expulsions. However, after a few months of working in classrooms with a 6:1 student-to-teacher ratio, they start to imagine the coming years with specific plans and goals. They start dreaming not only of graduating but continuing their education beyond high school. And they know Aviva will be beside them and their families at every step.
Our students tell stories of being let down, frustrated and bounced around larger schools before they came to Aviva. They describe Aviva High School as having close-knit classes, teachers who understand their individual needs and teach without judgment, and counselors who are available down the hall when feelings get tough.
It’s about finally going to a school where students realize the value of their skills, discover their innate ability to help others, and learn how to be responsible for their choices and actions. In short, Aviva High School is a unique and safe place where girls can grow, strive and dream more than they dared to before.
Giving Hope its Second Wind
In California, less than half of all foster youth graduate from high school and even fewer attend higher education.
Aviva High School helps at-risk teenage girls get their lives back on track, graduate high school, and go on to post-secondary education. 95% of our graduates go on to vocational schools, community colleges, and/or universities.
