Making Waves Academy
Making Waves commits to rigorously and holistically preparing students to gain acceptance to and graduate from college to ultimately become valuable contributors to the workforce and their communities.
Enrollment for 2017-18 is 795 students. Students are drawn from 11 cities and 39 schools in western Contra Costa County; 98% are students of color and 83% qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch.
Over 95% of MWA Upper School graduates are enrolled in post-secondary schools: about 70% in 4-year colleges and universities and about 25% in 2-year colleges.
We provide differentiated instruction for all students and have robust support programs for those performing in the lowest quartile.
