About Our Program

Educational Vision
The staff at SIERRA Charter School believes that all children should have an opportunity to be educated. Statistics have shown that traditional or conventional methods of learning do not always work. Therefore, we provide families with an alternative to traditional education.

At SIERRA Charter School, we encourage students, as well as their parents, to be involved in the learning process. Under the supervision of a credentialed facilitator, parents and students are assisted in the development and implementation of an individualized learning program. Students are enrolled in programs designed for success, and they advance from one grade to the next upon meeting CA Department of Education standards.

Our goal is to produce responsible, self-reliant, critical thinkers and life long learners. Cooperative efforts on the part of students, parents and SIERRA Charter School staff make this happen.

We can help you parents, too.

The school provides a trained facilitator who will monitor, assist, guide and counsel you and your students. We give you the support, information and resources needed to make independent study easier. Though parents must supervise and accept responsibility for the educational process of their students, with professional guidance offered by SIERRA Charter School , that task is much simpler.

The free support and resources provided by our school will enhance your existing programs. We also offer free in-home computers with modems and Internet access.
