Welcome to Central City Value High School

Central City Value High School's mission is to establish and support free, high quality, values-based charter schools for students historically underserved by traditional public schools. We help students to make a difference for their society and their world. 
 
Grounded in our values, our rigorous academic programs challenge our students to be a part of a rich learning environment. We have high expectations for our students and we do everything we can to ensure our students reach these expectations. Join us as we create exceptional schools, exceptional communities, and exceptional lives. 

Where our students say...

•I belong in this academic community;
• My ability and competence grow with
my effort;
• I can succeed at this; and
• This work has value for me.

Back East Scholars Trip – The Best of BEST!

The Back East Scholars Trip (BEST) was initiated in 2013 by Board Chair Grant Cambridge. He noticed many of our graduating seniors chose not to attend college. A small percentage enrolled in local state institutions. Students didn’t feel they had access to schools beyond Los Angeles, and certainly not schools on the other side of the country. Prestigious schools like Harvard, MIT, Brown, or Columbia weren't considered.
