Central Valley

Welcome to the Central Valley Region at Aspire Public Schools! The Central Valley Region has 14 schools in the communities of Sacramento, Stockton, Modesto, and Ceres. The Central Valley was Aspire’s first region, with University Charter School (Modesto) and Vincent Shalvey Academy (Stockton) opening in 1999. Our most recent addition to the region was the opening of Aspire Benjamin Holt Middle School in 2016. We currently serve over 5,800 students across the region.
