Mission Spotlight

It is the mission of Arcadia Charter School to prepare our students to transition intellectually, emotionally, and ethically to higher education, future employment, and engaged citizenship.

Arcadia Charter School envisions a supportive learning community that, through collaboration and student-driven, project-based learning, encourages and assists students to:

  • Express themselves creatively through the visual, literary, and performing arts.

  • Use technology with innovation, imagination, and responsibility.

  • Develop critical thinking and creative problem solving skills.

  • Construct knowledge and meaning for themselves.

  • Value, advocate, and strive for the wellness of the whole person.

  • Be empowered to act as local citizens within a rapidly changing global community.

Innovation Day

Our next Innovation Day is coming up on April 29th! This Innovation Day is designed to be active, interactive, and fun! It will definitely challenge students to express themselves creatively, use technology, and allow students to practice those creative problem solving skills! Materials will be dropped off or available for pick up (based on your preference) on April 27th. If you need to receive materials prior to that, or you have other specific instructions regarding materials, please let me know. If you have not yet done so, please fill out the drop off/pick up materials preference form.

Graduation and Senior Recognition

Seniors will be receiving a yard/window sign from Arcadia this week to help celebrate and recognize them! Anticipating that we will not be able to hold a typical graduation, we are working on plans that will still reflect our mission and some of the best parts of a typical Arcadia graduation. We will ensure that each senior still gets a personalized speech from their chosen staff member. We plan to share their moment with family and friends through live streaming. We will also record and combine everyone’s individual celebration of their accomplishments into one Arcadia graduation video for all seniors to share.

Meet with Laura

I am going to continue to offer a public Director Meet every day this week that anyone can attend from 12:30-1:30pm. Stop by to let me know how things are going at home! It’s an opportunity to ask me questions or share your feedback. I would love to hear from you!
