Imperial Valley EAOP

The Program

Imperial Valley CaliforniaThe Imperial Valley EAOP office was established in 1980 as a cooperative effort between the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and Imperial County School Districts. The program maintains partnerships and offers full services in six districts:

  • Brawley Union High School District
  • Calexico Unified Hich School District
  • Central Union High School District
  • El Centro Elementary School District
  • Heber School District
  • Imperial Unified School District

Each year, the Imperial Valley Office provides service to over 2,000 students of diverse backgrounds from the 6th-12th grades. 

The program is designed to increase the percentage of students who traditionally may not attend a four year post-secondary institution.
