Alameda Unified School District

We believe that our diverse community of students, given a rigorous academic program in an inclusive, safe and secure environment, will be prepared to be responsible citizens.

AUSD will effectively use our limited resources to ensure that every student succeeds.

Our five year strategic plan (“AUSD Master Plan”) adopted in 2010 identifies eight core goals and strategies that have shaped the District’s work in recent years. Along with our Board’s guiding principles, that strategic work has produced many accomplishments and great progress that we intend to continue to build on in the future.

California Crosspoint High School

California Crosspoint High School (CCHS) is a fully accredited high school with an excellent academic track record which is grounded in Christian values and the Chinese culture.
Our roots
Chinese Christian Schools began in 1979 as a K-12 educational ministry of the Bay Area Chinese Bible Church. From our first classes held in two small apartments in Oakland, CCHS has grown and emerged today as an award-winning, highly regarded high school with an ongoing partnership with our founding church.
Our environment
We warmly welcome students of any faith tradition, race, or ethnicity who value learning and are ready for a rewarding high school experience. Our small student body of over 225 students and quiet location along the San Francisco Bay allow us to maintain a nurturing family atmosphere. Although we’re known for excellence in academics, our menu of extra-curricular activities gives our students abundant opportunities to become well-rounded, contributing citizens.
Our philosophy
Our Christian faith and values provide the foundation for our approach to students and learning. We encourage our students to excel academically, while finding and nourishing their interests and passions, so they can realize God’s plan for their life. We also integrate elements of the Asian culture, traditions, and language in our programs and enroll many international students. We are led by our vision, core values, and faith.

The campus is easily accessible from downtown Oakland by personal or public transportation, auto or AC Transit bus through the Posey Tube on Webster Street. With its buildings surrounding a central courtyard, the campus is designed to encourage the interaction among students, faculty and staff essential to an effective learning environment.

The College has a satellite campus housing the Aviation Maintenance Programs located on a 2.5-acre site on Harbor Bay Parkway, adjacent to the Oakland International Airport’s North Field. We also have a new science lab and classroom building at 860 Atlantic, one block to the east of our main campus.

Career Technical Education and Occupational Courses

Our Career Technical Education and Occupational Courses (CTE) are concentrated and efficient. The same types of programs are taught at private schools that cost the students tens of thousands of dollars and take years to pay off. These high-demand career paths are a direct link to employment opportunities in our communities. The training programs are state of the art due to our master instructors and the latest equipment. Our Career and Technical Programs have ongoing industry partnerships with local, regional and national corporations. Industry partner advisory committees advise our CTE Programs’ faculty and administration in the latest industry standards and practices.

Program Accreditations and Certifications

College of Alameda is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges,(10 Commercial Blvd., Suite 204, Novato, CA 94949; 415/506-0234), an institutional accrediting body recognized by the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education.

Individual College of Alameda occupational programs are accredited or certified by the American Dental Association (ADA) Council on Dental Education for Dental Assistants, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
