We are excited for updates to the front of our school, the front office, and the outdoor classroom area. Thanks to Measure I and CVUSD funding, we are getting a facelift for our grand re-opening as a new CVUSD Magnet School of Choice - Acacia School for Enriched Learning! We appreciate your patience with our mess. Our office is closed for summer. We plan to open on August 6, but the office may be in an alternate temporary location.

Summer Time

We wish our Acacia Cubs and families a HAPPY SUMMER! Be safe and take time to read, pursue your passions, and find new interests. Get outside and explore too!

Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) School

At Acacia, we believe in the strengths, passions, talents, and interests of our students, and we strive for joyful learning. We implement an approach called Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) that is grounded in over 40 years of research and practice. It stems from best practices in Gifted and Talented Education and brings a student-driven focus to high level learning for all students. We believe that gifted education is not who you are, but rather what you do. Through the 3 E's of ENJOYMENT, ENTHUSIASM, and ENGAGEMENT we aim to cultivate self-directed learners  who pursue their passions and create a successful future!
