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.

May Term is coming up! We have a great menu of activities planned, and students will have the opportunity to choose what they do each day or for the whole May Term. From outdoor activities to reading Romeo and Juliet, there should be something for everyone! I will share more details in a separate email, but here is the general schedule (similar to our current schedule, but with only advisory and their one May Term class for that day):

Advisory 8:30am-9:00am: Advisors take attendance and students finalize their choice of activity for the day

May Term Activity 9:00am-11:30am: Students receive instruction for the activity, then complete their activity and document what they did

Lunch Break 11:30am-12:30pm

12:30-2:30pm: Students can work with teachers on make up/missing items from 4th quarter or meet with teachers by appointment to continue their learning. 

Meet with Laura

I am going to continue to offer a public Director Meet Monday (5/18) and Thursday (5/21) 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!
