College Going Culture

#LVLAGoestoCollege

To promote the school’s college going culture, LVLA offers three annual overnight college trips to Southern California, Northern California and the East Coast. LVLA believes that it is critical to expand students’ horizons and expose them to various college and universities. The school fundraises vigorously for these trips with the goal of making the college trips either free or low cost to LVLA families.

  • UCLA
  • UC Riverside
  • CSU Long Beach
  • Loyola Marymount University
  • Cal Poly San Luis Obispo
  • Whittier College
  • UC Berkeley
  • UC Davis
  • CSU Sacramento
  • Georgetown
  • Columbia
