Thanks to overwhelming community support and parent demand, Alpha opened its first charter school campus, Alpha: Blanca Alvarado, in fall 2012 in the Alum Rock neighborhood of San Jose, California.
Led by principal Cynthia Nava and staffed by talented and energetic teachers, Alpha: Blanca Alvarado is a small, safe and tuition-free community school that serves scholars in grades 5-8.
We were honored to name the school after Blanca Alvarado, a longtime public official, community leader and youth advocate in Santa Clara County. As the first in her family and community to assume public office, Blanca Alvarado’s leadership provides great inspiration for our scholars — many of whom will be the first in their families to attend college and pave the way for their own families and communities.
