The vision of Oakland Emiliano Zapata Street Academy (OEZSA/Street Academy) is to provide students a small, safe high school with a social justice focused, college preparatory education. Youth placed at high risk due to a variety of social determinants can work hard for a second chance to earn a diploma here. Curriculum is designed to challenge, engage, and prepare our youth to graduate ready for college, career or job. All students are enrolled in A-G required courses during the core day. During the afternoon program, class schedules are tailored to the individual needs of students such as credit recovery or enrichment and/or extracurricular activities such as fine or physical arts. Every student participates in our Social Justice & Community Organizing Pathway by engaging in meaningful work-based learning opportunities in the nonprofit industry on Workforce Wednesdays.
