What Students Are Saying

3.91 Average Rating
This school is one of the best small schools in the country. It has a killer academic program, as well as top notch D3 sports' programs. What makes this school even better, are the people that come here.
Philip from Barstow, CA
Cal Lu is proud to have a school that is all about diversity. Students are able to connect more with other students, professors and the community of Thousand Oaks. The small school size will help any student learn more about the subject they want to learn more of with smaller sized classes, and have more opportunities to have a better and brighter future!
