Small Learning Communities

Small Learning Communities in SLzUSD

San Lorenzo Unified has “choice-based” enrollment at the high school level.  This means a student can sign up to attend any one of our high school Small Learning Communities (SLCs) on any of our high school campuses, regardless of address. Students are encouraged to choose an SLC that best fits their talents and interests. All of the SLCs offer a rigorous, comprehensive college prep curriculum, but each does so through a different college and career theme. Students in SLCs still participate in activities and events such as: sports teams and games; school-wide rallies and assemblies; dances, proms and balls; the music program; the Advanced Placement (AP) program; the English Learner (EL) program; the Special Education program; and a wide assortment of student clubs and organizations. We invite you to view our video of our current SLC's.
