Principal’s Welcome

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Impact Academy of Arts and Technology, a member of the Envision Schools network. Founded in 2007 by a devoted group of educators and community members, we are dedicated to preparing and inspiring all students to enter, succeed in, and graduate from college.

Our empowering and transformative learning community is rooted in the agreements we make to one another, whether we are students, family members, faculty, coaches, or adult mentors:

• We are respectful.
• We are safe.
• We work hard.
• We support one another.

All Impact students engage in a rigorous academic program that satisfies California’s A-G course requirements, intern through our Workplace Learning Experience program, apply to colleges, and present and defend a portfolio of their best original work.

We place a strong emphasis on building powerful relationships between our young people and adults. All of our students spend their four year high school journey as part of close-knit advisories, a family that nurtures and supports each other’s social, emotional, and academic growth. Each week, our student body comes together for student-led Community Meetings, where we celebrate our “Spartan Pride,” set new goals, and honor one another’s unique perspectives and accomplishments.

If you’re not already a member of the Spartan community, please come visit us in Hayward to learn more about how to get involved.

- Sean McClung, Principal
