Our Programs

Welcome to a Different Way of Learning

SLVUSD Charter is a tuition-free public school designed to create innovative program options for students and their families who choose to participate in a different format of instruction. We offer K–12 homeschooling, K–12 hybrid/homeschool options, and a 6th–8th grade five day a week program for families who prefer an individualized approach to education. We are a dependent Charter and support students within the district as well as students living in nearby cities. By forming a strong partnership between the district, parents, students, and our teachers, we are able to create an environment that's particularly tailored for the students who choose to enroll and participate in our environment.

Our programs are a place where:
  • Teachers have the professionalism and flexibility to innovate
  • Parents participate and are involved in the learning process with their student and within the classroom
  • Students are accepted for who they are and where they are in their learning journey
  • All three share in the responsibility of improving student learning
  • The Administrative Team is dedicated to ensuring the resources and support needed to maintain success
