Central Valley

Welcome to the Central Valley Region at Aspire Public Schools! The Central Valley Region has 16 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 additions to the region were the opening of Aspire Benjamin Holt Middle School in 2016, and Aspire Stockton Secondary Academy and Aspire Stockton Elementary in 2020. We currently serve over 6,600 students across the region.
