Independence Charter Academy is an online independent study program for children enrolled in transitional kindergarten through 12th grade. As a part of the Helendale School District, our students have access to all of the programs available through a traditional brick and mortar school with the flexibility of completing their schoolwork whenever is most convenient for them.
Your student’s success is our #1 goal which is why our teachers are available to our students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our results speak for themselves – in the past year we have had 0 suspensions or expulsions and a 100% graduation rate for the class of 2018.
It is our goal to serve a diverse learning community while catering to the needs of every student. We embrace the “complete student” concept of education including leadership, citizenship, personal and interpersonal development.
The mission of the Independence Charter Academy, in conjunction with parental and community support, is to develop all students to the fullest of their potential while educating our students to accomplish their highest level of academic accomplishment and develop a positive self-esteem.
The staff at the Independence Charter Academy will provide a dynamic educational system centered around student achievement, integrity, character development and the lifelong learning. Independence Charter Academy is committed to focusing on high expectations and individual academic success and to creating a community of respect and responsibility to enable all students to become caring, contributing citizens who can succeed in our diverse world.
Independence Charter Academy will provide a high-quality education environment that formulates students to be responsible citizens whether they choose post-secondary education, the military or employment following graduation. We are committed to motivating our students by inspiring them to think critically, collaborate and communicate successfully with others, solve problems efficiently, and incorporate useful technology to enrich their lives.
WE ASPIRE excellence as we instruct and support students to prepare for the future. WE SERVE the students and community and strive to meet their needs and challenges. WE VALUE each student’s development, successes, disappointments, and the finished product.
