CAL Core Values
The people of CAL value all types of thinkers and doers: those who can learn from each other; who enjoy working as teams; who are up to the challenge to ask hard questions. We challenge one another to explore & grow our knowledge beyond rote and compliant course work.
Our minds are freethinking. Students come from different high schools, representing diverse neighborhoods and families, so they learn to generate unique ideas from multiple perspectives.
Creating solutions to problems requires collaboration. We work together to explore new ideas, experiment, and persevere.
Above all else, we’re dedicated to working on relevant, real-world challenges. We learn from industry professionals in our program areas, apply knowledge as interns in real jobs, and activate our professional skills relevant to today’s workplace.
