CCSA is proud to recognize more than 30 charter schools throughout California who have been honored under the Gold Ribbon Schools Awards Program by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson. California Charter Schools recognized are listed below. A full list of all schools can be found here.

The Gold Ribbon Awards recognize California schools that have made gains in implementing the academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education. These include the California Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics, California English Language Development Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards. These schools represent examples of not just excellent teaching, learning, and collaborating, but also highly successful school climate efforts, ranging from real time conflict resolution to positive behavior intervention.

Additionally, Gold Ribbon awardees that are also Title I schools were recognized as Academic Achieving Schools and are identified as such on the list with an asterisk (*) This additional recognition is given only to schools receiving federal Title I funds that assist in meeting the educational needs of students living at or below the poverty line.
