Today’s Life Leadership is brought to you by SCViCharterSchool where they are inspiring lifelong learners with the skills to thrive in the 21st century.

The population of the city of Santa Clarita has grown by 50,000 residents in the past ten years. The Santa Clarita Valley has a growing spectrum of ethnicity as well as cultural and linguistic heritages. However, there is no school in this geographical area that offers a program particularly designed to prepare school-aged children and adolescents in grades K-12 to become compassionate world citizens.  For this reason, we propose a K-12 charter for the Santa Clarita Valley to fill this educational need.  We are a group of parents and educators forming another classroom-based option for schooling in Santa Clarita, California.  Recognizing that one size does not fit all for our children, we offer another choice.

Founded in the research of some of the greatest educational theorists, such as Vygostky, Freire and Piaget, we are forming a constructivist philosophy school with portfolio-based assessment.  We will introduce foreign language, exchange students and teachers,  the arts, advisory programs, and physical education as part of the regular curriculum.  SCVi launched in the fall of 2008.

The school offers project-based K-12 curriculum and student-led assessment with global and culturally diverse influences. Through an inquiry-based approach to education, the students at the school "learn to learn."  Modeled after successful schools such as International School of Monterey, GuajomeParkAcademy, and Bill Gates' High Tech High, we have a learner-centered approach using facilitators.  The primary goal of our school is to help learners lead a successful and fulfilled life while contributing to the world around them.
