Life Academy seeks to dramatically interrupt patterns of injustice and inequity for underserved communities in Oakland. Through transformative learning experiences focused on Health, Medicine and Bioscience, students are engaged in learning and inspired to acquire the skills needed to succeed in college and careers in the medical field. Life Academy is a small community driven-school for families looking for family-style experience. We truly believe that if every student is known and held, they will succeed. Life Academy is a place where everyone knows your name, and will hold you to a high standard. We believe that students who leave Life Academy should have choice-filled lives, and be ready to enter the post-secondary world with a strong sense of purpose and self.
