Principal’s Message

Dear Aspire CCPA Students and Families,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  Aspire CCPA opened its doors in 2013 to serve families in the Huntington Park Area.  As a small, 6-8 grade, charter school, CCPA believes in “College for Certain” for all students.  In order to ensure this promise, CCPA offers a wide variety of elective, sports, and academic programs to ensure its students are college-bound.  In addition, all CCPA students enjoy visiting two different college campuses every year to help them be exposed to the variety of options they have for college.

Here’s to another great year!

Mike McCoy
Principal, Aspire Centennial College Preparatory Academy
