This chapter examines student indicators across Years 1 to 7 at California College Preparatory Academy (CAL Prep), illuminating CAL Prep’s successes and challenges in providing a rigorous education to all students. The chapter uses school- and individual-level data to investigate changes in the student body profile and predictors of attrition, contextualized by demographic characteristics and student reports of perceived barriers. Data show that both student attrition and teacher turnover decreased over time. In the second half of the chapter, the data lens is focused on academic performance and the reduction in the achievement gap for African American and Latino students as compared to county and state results. The authors examine student achievement across the years to the graduation of the first two cohorts in 2011 and 2012, earned early college credits, and enrollment in college.

Keywords:   attrition, barriers, CAL Prep, college credit/high school, graduation/high school, college enrollment
