The California Creative Learning Academy (CalCreative) is a place where students, teachers, parents, and the community collaborate to create a nurturing and inspiring learning environment where students can develop academic and life skills. Through our holistic approach to learning the California Creative Learning Academy (CalCreative) empowers our students to inquire, self-express, listen to multiple perspectives, and take risks to discover who they are and create a world they want to live in.

We are a model public school helping to create a society that deeply values what it means to be human as a creative process and values one another as purposeful beings solving problems as a way of being. 

As a philosophy of learning, we value learning through creative processes as authentic catalysts for social change in education. Creative learning is the change needed in education that creates a connected society that cares for one another and values inclusivity and diversity throughout our shared experience. As a way of being, we are helping to create a society that deeply values what it means to be human as a creative process. → Learn more
