Class of 2018 Ready to Take Flight in the Fall
Culver City High School students are accepted and attend colleges and universities across the country and globally. This trailblazing senior class has been accepted to some of the most highly competitive universities including Harvard, Yale, Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, UPenn, MIT, Cal-Tech, Stanford, UCLA, UC Berkeley and many more prestigious institutions.

This year’s highlights include over 10 athletic scholarships awarded, three Posse Scholars earning students full-tuition scholarships to Dickinson, Northwestern and UC Berkeley campuses and two semi-finalists selected for the National Merit Scholarship Program. One Centaur in particular was accepted to five out of eight Ivy League universities. As the class of 2018 leaves their unprecedented Centaur spirit, our rising senior class of 2019 is one step behind them with 13 students to date receiving recognition in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program (top 1/3 % nationally). As you can see, undoubtedly, Culver City High School students are sought after and recognized as inspirational role models who exude academic excellence.

El Rincon Students Blast Off
Their Creations at Science Night
The Science Night at El Rincon Elementary School was a huge success! Students and families were able to participate in different hands-on science activities including creating their own rocket then launching it with the U.S. Air Force!
CCUSD Gearing Up for Sixth Annual FREE Summer Lunch Program
Because our kids need to remain healthy, connected, safe and “whole” during the summer months, CCUSD has created a free lunch program complete with a variety of daily activities for students under 18! The program, a first come/first served lunch program, begins June 18 and includes, not only free lunch, but a great line-up of activities, games and more – all for free!
 
  • What:  Sixth Annual Free Summer Lunch and More (the “more” is the fun part – with books, board games, special guests, arts and crafts, physical activities, etc.)
  • Where: La Ballona Elementary School
  • When: Monday – Friday, June 18 – July 27 NOTE: NO PROGRAM ON JULY 4, 2018
  • 11 am – 12:30 pm Lunch
  • 11:30 am – 1:0 pm Activities
  • Who: Anyone under the age of 18 (no forms to fill out)
  • Why: It has been proven that some students not only miss out on meaningful growth opportunities in the summer, but actually regress and lose academic, social and behavioral skills. This opportunity to eat a free healthy meal becomes even more impactful with the opportunities for students to learn, play games, connect with peers, connect with caring adults, participate in a summer reading program, and learn new skills.
 
The site is OPEN to all teens and children, 18 and under, and is FREE of charge. All food must be eaten on-site. Parents are more than welcome to stay and partake in interactive activities while their children eat and play. The site will be open to the public daily at 11 am and closed at 1 pm, at which time all students must clear the school site.
 
For more information, please call (310) 849-1731.
