Find out why it’s great to be a Ram! Eighth graders can tour one of the top schools in the nation as part of our annual Millikan Night on December 5 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., starting in the auditorium.
Millikan will showcase its six Small Learning Communities, which help each student to find his or her “place” in high school. Small Learning Communities are groups of students and teachers united around a pathway or industry theme, while a specialized program is an SLC with entrance requirements.
The school’s three specialized programs, COMPASS, PEACE, and QUEST, have a record number of “Shadow Day” tours. Shadow Days are now closed; Millikan Night will be a great opportunity to sample all of our academies.
The GREEN Academy focuses on environmental stewardship, while the MIT Academy boasts a dual technology focus including graphic design and information technology. The MBA Academy concentrates on entrepreneurship and business skills.
The specialized programs are the COMPASS, PEACE, and QUEST communities. COMPASS focuses on the arts and PEACE centers on social justice; each recommends that applicants have a minimum of 2.5 GPA.
Eighth graders interested in the gifted and talented program at QUEST should be aware that a minimum 3.3 GPA and “proficient” or better on seventh grade California Standards Tests for ELA and mathematics are recommended, along with enrollment in Algebra.
All academies at Millikan may participate in our Advanced Placement program, which offers 22 classes, including AP Calculus BC and AP Studio Art. Our campus art gallery, Moore League champion sports teams, and award-winning theater and music programs also draw students from all academies. Representatives from these programs will be available at Millikan Night.
Millikan is consistently ranked among the nation’s top schools by Newsweek, the Washington Post, and U.S. News and World Report. Join us in celebrating Millikan Nation!
