Samueli Academy

The Junior League of Orange County, California has been a long time supporter of the Samueli Academy, the Orangewood Foundation’s college-preparatory public charter high school. The Samueli Academy’s mission is to provide a transformational learning environment to foster underserved teens and to serve as both a home and educational facility for foster and at-risk youth in Orange County. The school is located on over seven acres in Santa Ana, and accommodates a student body of 480, including the potential for up to 80 students to live on-site.

The JLOCC members have many hands-on volunteer opportunities on the Samueli Academy campus. We have been involved with facilitating their monthly Community Nights, as well as various events throughout the school year. We look forward to creating new and exciting programs that will broaden each member’s training experience and most importantly, positively impact the lives of each student.
