ACSA believes every student deserves equal opportunities to succeed. On every school day throughout California, dedicated educators and courageous students overcome tremendous obstacles to reach their goals of academic excellence. Their success is our success; their powerful stories are our inspiration.

ACSA’s Every Student Succeeding program honors students who exceed our expectations and the educators who support them along the way. We are proud to highlight these young men and women who have overcome great obstacles to succeed. They face life’s challenges head on. Their stories are remarkable and their futures are bright. For more information, visit state ACSA’s website for overview of this program.

Every year, ACSA Region 6 honors students in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties at all grade levels who have succeeded, against all odds, beyond expectations or simply won the hearts of the administrators and other educators who helped them achieve their goals.

Region 6 Charters are encouraged to nominate students and recognize them at local charter events. Nominations for Every Student Succeeding are due on February 26, 2021.

Please submit your nominations to Pam VandeKamp at
