The vision for YPI Valley Public Charter High School is to create a place of learning that empowers students to become functional and prepared communicators for the demanding global requirements of the future.
The high school will provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member will develop communications, technological, and leadership skills to foster self-confidence and personal growth. Emphasis will be placed on challenging students to develop problem-solving and interpersonal skills to succeed in the 21st Century through Service-Learning, Linked Learning and technology integration across subjects. The Service-Learning and Linked Learning will be the basis of the YPI Valley Public Charter High School’s educational focus and build on core strengths from the Bert Corona Charter School (service learning) and the San Fernando Institute for Applied Media Pilot School (project-based learning), and the strong technology resources provided by the Youth Policy Institute for families in the community. Students who have attended Bert Corona Charter School have participated in programs through Youth Policy Institute that provided each family with computers. It is anticipated that YPI Valley Public Charter High School will also apply for programs to continue to provide access to technology.
YPI Valley Public Charter High School’s mission is to prepare students for academic success in high school; as well as, post-secondary education and careers, prepare students to be responsible and active participants in their community, and enable students to become life-long learners. Students at the high school will become active citizens characterized by the ideals of a diverse and democratic society. Our students will provide service to their community, take responsibility for their own learning, and develop the habits of mind that will empower them to be successful in high school and beyond.
