Independence Charter Academy

Helendale School District’s premier independent accredited charter school for children throughout California.

Enrolling now for 2018-2019

We provide an alternative school environment that prepares students of all grade levels for excellence. Our teachers and staff work closely with TK-12 students to instill strong values and develop the qualities that will prepare them for real-world success.

What is a charter school?

Charter schools are publicly funded independent schools established by teachers, parents, or community groups under the terms of a charter with a local or national authority. This gives us the flexibility to create practices and curricula that truly meet each student’s need in a way that public schools can’t. We are proud to create an environment where students of all grade levels can excel.

For our high school students, individuals can elect to take classes that match their post-graduation ambitions, including college-prep and concurrent enrollment classes as well as a technical education pathway for those planning to enter the workforce after graduation.
