The Nicholas Academic Centers provide after‐school tutoring and mentoring for high school students in the Santa Ana Unified School District.[1] The two Centers—NAC I in downtown Santa Ana (412 W. 4th Street),[2] and NAC II on the campus of Valley High School (1801 S. Greenville Street)[3]—serve hundreds of students on a daily basis throughout the school year and summer. In the Santa Ana Unified School District, about 55 percent of students are English‐language learners and 75 percent come from low‐income families.[4] The Centers were established by retired Superior Court Judge Jack Mandel and Dr. Henry T. Nicholas, co-founder and former Co-Chairman, President and CEO of Broadcom Corporation. NAC I opened in January 2008 and NAC II opened the following year.[5] The Centers are supported by grants from the Henry T. Nicholas, III Foundation.[6] Since opening, the Centers have achieved dramatic results, with more than 100 graduating seniors going on to college and receiving nearly $2 million in scholarships and financial aid. NAC students now attend some of the nation's best four-year colleges and universities, including Georgetown, Smith, Haverford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and UCI.[7]
