Southern California Style, Southern California Class!
A Sun-Drenched Setting for a Perfect Summer.

Los Angeles is home to countless celebrities, and now you can call it home, too! Take in the excitement of UCLA, the beauty of Santa Monica and the unparalleled pristine beaches of Malibu. It’s the perfect place for anyone looking for an active summer! We are surrounded by great hiking trails and bike paths, and you can even surf, swim or kayak in the Pacific Ocean! Professional instruction and equipment are always available. Be sure to pack your sense of adventure!

If your sport is shopping, you’ll find the best shopping worldwide at the upscale shops of Westwood, Malibu Country Mart, Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade and Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive, where you just might rub elbows with Hollywood celebs. From Prada to Polo, Valentino to Versace, it’s truly a street of dreams!

The Finest Fitness Facilities

The LA program offers outstanding athletic facilities that meet the needs of any exercise enthusiast. You’ll have access to state-of-the-art workout facilities such as the renowned John Wooden Center and plenty of other athletic and recreational options during your stay. You can lace up your running shoes for a jog on campus, or hit the gym to pump some iron or get moving on an elliptical trainer. Outdoor tennis courts, basketball courts and plenty of other options are sure to keep you busy. Of course, a game of touch football or a little Frisbee is always a campus classic. One of the most exciting things about LA is you never know who you may run into whether it’s Kobe Bryant shooting hoops in the Wooden Center or Real Madrid practicing out on the soccer fields. Just make sure to pack your workout gear — it’s going to be a very active summer!

You will have time to take advantage of all the outstanding options available at the John Wooden Center, which include:

Squash Courts

We maintain a ten-to-one student-to-staff ratio – one of the lowest in the industry – to ensure everyone gets the unmatched attention and unique personalized programs they deserve. As part of our commitment to student safety, ACA staff members live on student-occupied floors, accompany students on all activities and excursions, and are always equipped with cellphones for emergencies. ACA takes care to use private transportation for our weekday activities and weekend adventure trips – never public transportation.
