Welcome to the 2013-14 school year!
American River Charter School (ARCS) is a charter school in the Black Oak Mine Unified School District (BOMUSD) consisting of two diverse programs:
Our site-based program is located in Georgetown and our focus is on creating independent thinkers in a positive cooperative school community using hands- on curriculum in multiage classes. We provide students in grades K-8 an educational option with a focus on experiential, project- based instruction, an arts-infused curriculum and small class sizes. Our goal is for our students to become life long learners!
Our K-12 Home School Program provides homeschooling families a variety of educational options including a supervising teacher for guidance and parent chosen educational resources, including vendor classes, field trips, Hybrid classes for certain grades and instructional supplies.
Both programs use the Common Core standards to guide instruction. We have a parent club called Friends of ARCS to help facilitate parental involvement. They support our social and fundraising events as well as help support our "wish list" in the areas of technology, music and the arts.
For more information about either of these programs, please follow the links on the left, or feel free to contact our office at 530.333.8340. We continually accept applications for 2014-15 home school, but have a waiting list for grades k--6 in the site program. If you are interested in visiting our school or adding your child to our waiting list, contact our office for more details or you can email our Director, Susan Whittington at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
We accept applications for our K-12 for Home School throughtout the year. We also are offering Hybrid classes (home school students who come to school for 20% of time) for grades K-3 next year. See more information under Enrollment section. Our K-6 site classes are full for 2014-15 and we have started a waiting list. We have a few spots open in the 7-8 classroom.
