Applications Are Being Accepted Now for CVLCC’s 9th Grade

One of the most dynamic charter schools in San Diego County is expanding to serve high school students. Applications are now being accepted at Chula Vista Learning Community Charter School for its inaugural ninth grade class. The school will be the first in the Chula Vista Elementary School District to serve students in grade 9, starting July 25 for the 2012-13 academic year. Plans are to add a 10th grade in the 2013-14 school year, and 11th and 12th grades in subsequent years. CVLCC plans to eventually build a new school that will house all the charter’s grade levels, from preschool through 12th grade. For more information about CVLCC’s high school program, please see English flier or Spanish flier.

Established in 1998, CVLCC initially served students in kindergarten through sixth grade, adding grades 7 and 8 in recent years. CVLCC offers a school-wide Dual Immersion program. Students spend half of their instructional day in English and the other half in Spanish. Its string of academic success has prompted a stream of visitors, from educators in other countries to ranking elected officials. In 2009, then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger toured classrooms and held a press conference at the school, holding it up as a model for academic gains that could be replicated across the state.

“What a success story, I have to say,” Schwarzenegger said of CVLCC, at the time. “This charter school is number one in the District in math. …I also like that it has the highest attendance rate in the District. Your parents are volunteering…Everyone here is working together.”
