Alameda’s School of Enterprise Hosts Open House

The Bay Area School of Enterprise, located at 1900 Third Street, is hosting an information night and open house from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. tonight, Thursday, February 24.

BASE is managed by Alternatives in Action of Alameda and offers students tuition-free training and leadership development.

The Alameda high school recently had its charter renewed by the school district.

The campus in the city’s West End is the first student-launched charter high school in the nation, and about 115 students are now enrolled at BASE, which combines college-prepatory classes with community projects.

Its program aims to motivate young people who many not thrive in a traditional classroom setting.

For more information about the school, or to set up a student interview, call 510-748-4314, extension 301.
