NAC Scholars are explorers, selfless, and leaders inside and outside their community. NAC Scholars choose a different path to academic excellence and are committed to attend and graduate from college.

NAC Scholars attend different high schools around the Santa Ana community. However, most of the students attend schools that are part of the Santa Ana Unified School District (S.A.U.S.D.). Currently, 85% of NAC scholars attend SAUSD schools such as Valley High School, Century High School, Santa Ana High School, Saddleback High School, Segerstrom High School, Godinez Fundamental and Middle College High School. The continuous support from SAUSD and the high schools has given the opportunity for the NAC to continue to aid under deserve high school students.
