The Early Days

Monarch River Academy’s Sister School Opens

Westside Elementary School District approved the school’s charter petition and Yosemite Valley Charter opened this fall to TK-12th grade students in Fresno and contiguous counties.

Lending Library Opened

Making resources accessible to all students was the primary inspiration for the opening of the Lending Library, a wonderful place for students to find learning materials to enhance their educational plans.

Monarch River Academy Opened

Alta Vista Elementary School District approved the school’s charter petition and the school opened to serve TK-12th grade students in Tulare and contiguous counties.

Virtual Academies Started

Innovative instructional strategies, engaging teaching methods, and targeted content design created the live, online classes for students in core subjects to provide additional opportunities for high-quality instruction.

Academic Adventures Begin

Not just a “field trip,” the Academic Adventures program takes learning outside home classrooms and opens the door to unique and engaging experiences that combine curricular content, life skills, the arts, and socialization to students.

We love Central Valley Charter Schools! Our children have grown so much ever since starting school here. Our teacher has been very helpful and knowledgeable about high school requirements, many different ideas for curriculum, and great resources for college classes, dual enrollment and high school enrichment. Enrolling in this school has been one of the best decisions we've ever made.

Cara S. / Clovis

I am so thankful to be a part of a school that supports me so well as my child’s Learning Coach. My concerns and feedback are respected and I feel equipped with the best resources so that I can best guide my daughter in her educational journey.
