On Saturday, February 23, 2019, nearly 1,000 parents and children from our network of schools in Boyle Heights, South LA, and Watts joined us for our 9th Annual University Day hosted at Cal State University, Northridge. University Day is an event designed to immerse students and parents into the college experience.
