Since Hogan High School closed its doors in 2010, the city of Vallejo has featured four high schools with sports competition — Vallejo, Jesse Bethel, St. Patrick-St. Vincent and North Hills Christian.
A fifth — ELITE Public Charter School — will give local athletes another option starting in the fall.
The Whitney Avenue campus featured classes for the first time in 2020-21. ELITE has about 500 students.
The Eagles will feature competition in six sports — football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer and track and field. ELITE will be an independent program in the Sac-Joaquin Section, meaning the school will not be part of any conference.
