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.

I want to call your attention to two excellent student-created publications that have formed since we’ve moved online!!

The first is The Arcadia Podcast, developed and produced by Isaac U. The last of his weekly podcasts will be published this week here! The link will go out again with the daily announcements tomorrow morning. I hope you have all enjoyed listening to his entertaining, community-connecting creation! 

The second is The Littleschool Independent, our new school newspaper with editor Milo W.! Read more about it here, on The Littleschool Independent site. Personally, I recommend the article “Top Ten Ways to Stay Productive Online”!

I am going to continue to offer a public Director Meet Tuesday-Friday of 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!
