The Reach for the Stars Program will produce responsible citizens who have the 21st Century skills they will need to become successful in college, career and life.


Whittier City School District and the Community of Whittier believe that our children are our future. We have formed a partnership to provide Community Learning Centers at local schools that provide a safe and nurturing environment for students and community members to learn and grow.  We will integrate our resources in an effort to strengthen our community, increase academic achievement and decrease crime and violence for Whittier City youth and their families.
