Educating Tomorrow’s Leaders:
Academics - Enrichment - Empowerment


The Mission of the Yuba City Charter School is to equip urban and rural students between the ages of 5-18 in Sutter/Yuba County Region with the two kinds of literacy necessary in the 21st century – the ability to read, write, speak and calculate with the clarity and precision and the ability to participate passionately and responsibly in the life of the community. The Yuba City Charter School will promote positive personal character, strong work ethics, and an education that enables all students to reach their highest levels of achievement to become exemplary citizens with life-long respect for respect learning, democratic values and recognition or understanding of world-wide diversity in order to meet future challenges.
