About Us

The Elk Grove Charter School is committed to creating individualized educational opportunities for students by combining classroom instruction, independent study instruction, and community and workplace educational experiences. This educational approach is for students who seek an alternative to the traditional classroom-only instructional approach. It is also an alternative to the Elk Grove Unified School District's comprehensive and continuation high school programs.
Our district's mission is to provide a learning community that challenges all students to realize their greatest potential.
Elk Grove Charter School supports the district's mission and bold goals through the Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLRs). These expectations state students will become:
  • Academic Achievers
  • Self-Directed Learners
  • Effective Communicators
  • Productive Workers
  • Responsible Citizens
Our success in implementing our district's mission can be evidenced through our educational model's strengths, which include:
  • An individualized learning plan developed for each student
  • English, math and science workshops for 9th and 10th grade students
  • A flexible independent study format that allows students to pursue their assignments creatively and independently
  • Supplemental classes and open labs designed to enhance learning
Parental support and involvement continue to be important aspects of success at Elk Grove Charter School. Parent support and involvement is facilitated through governance meetings. These meetings assist Elk Grove Charter School in making critical decisions about instructional goals and the scope of our program.
Students at Elk Grove Charter School follow the Elk Grove Unified School District requirements to earn either a Comprehensive High School Diploma or a Continuation Diploma. Therefore, in order to best meet the needs of our students, Elk Grove Charter School provides curricular instruction in both a traditional direct-instruction format and in an independent study environment. Specifically, our 7th through 10th grade students complete their core curriculum (i.e. English, Math and Science) in the traditional classroom setting.
All other curriculum is delivered via the independent study model of instruction. Eleventh and 12th grade students function completely as independent study students. However, we do offer support workshops to students in subjects that have proven to be historically difficult to self teach.
We thank you for your interest in our program and look forward to being a part of your student's educational experience!
