About Alder Grove Charter School
Alder Grove Charter School is an independent study charter school, K-12, in Northern California that provides a voluntary public educational choice for families of students who choose to educate their children in the home environment.

We believe individual differences and the uniqueness of each child are to be supported and celebrated. Our mission is to serve students through personalized learning and supporting parental choice in education.We serve all of Humboldt County!

Our Commitment to You, the Parent

  • Our mission is to support you, the parent, as you make choices regarding your student's education. In order to do this, we provide you with a Credentialed Teacher (CT), who is your primary connection to the school and your first source of information. A CT must meet face-to-face with the student and parent at least once every 20 school days.
  • Your CT should answer any questions that you may have about the school. If s/he is unable to immediately answer your question, s/he will research the answer and get back to you. If at any time you feel that you are not getting adequate help from your CT, please let her/him know. If that does not resolve the issue, please contact the director at the school office.
  • We have a monthly newsletter that will be emailed to all families on our email list. It is a valuable source of information regarding school-wide events and. If you would prefer to receive the newsletter via regular mail, please let the office know.
  • Options for your student's education include a wide variety of instructional materials and services. Your CT can explain the variety of options available to you on our approved vendor list.
  • We have a list of vendors from whom you may choose curriculum and supplies. Your CT will evaluate your needs and help you select the best curriculum. You are welcome to collect catalogs from our vendors and find items yourself, or you can ask your CT to select appropriate educational items for you. Your CT will place all orders for you and keep track of the amount of funding available for each of your students. If you would like to use a vendor not on our list, let your CT know.
  • You may use instructional funding to provide a computer for use in your home while enrolled in our school. If you do not have a computer, we encourage you to investigate this option with your CT.
  • We administer all California state-mandated tests. In the spring of each year, we administer the STAR for students in grades 2-11. We administer the California High School Exit Exam three times a year. We administer the state-mandated physical fitness test to 5 th , 7 th and 9 th grade students each spring. These tests are state and federally mandated and essential for the continued operation of our school.
  • Alder Grove students will also take a standards-based assessment each school year.
  • You will be provided with a list of benchmark standards for each of your students by your CT. Your CT will help you in providing materials and curriculum to cover these standards.
