Mountain Oaks offers the best of independent study at home, with on-site classes and online educational opportunities. Our school was established in response to parents seeking high-quality personalized educational options for their children, and by teachers who recognized that the traditional classroom does not meet the needs of all students. Our philosophy focuses on the concept of providing a unique, high quality, standards-based learning plan for each student that includes flexibility through varied curriculum, individualized support and innovative opportunities. Honoring parent and student choice, in the context of accountability to meet or exceed State/Common Core Standards, is the cornerstone of our philosophy. Each student and their family works with a fully credentialed teacher to develop a personalized learning plan focused on optimizing that student's potential. As Mountain Oaks is a public charter school, there are no enrollment or tuition fees charged.
