From our charter, here is our admissions philosophy:
Fundamental to the notion of educational reform is the concept of choice. Children and families have different needs, learning styles, and priorities. The closer the values of the school community to home life, the faster the child’s adaptation. If there is a perceived discrepancy between home values and school values, or if the child’s own personal directions are incompatible with the school community, the child will continue to experience difficulty. By carefully matching families and schools the opportunities for successful growth and development of each child will be greatly enhanced.
Sedona Charter School is a public school open to all eligible candidates subject to space and staff availability. (Sedona Charter School does not accept students who have been expelled from another school.) Sedona Charter School does not discriminate based on ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, income level, disability, proficiency in the English language, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal or athletic ability.
Students residing in the state of Arizona are eligible to attend Sedona Charter School. There are no particular geographic boundaries.
A child demonstrating the following qualities would be most likely to succeed in the learning environment of the Sedona Charter School:
- Passionate about learning
- Willing to investigate and take risks
- Enjoys choosing among several options
- A self-directed learner
- Able to work independently
- Follows through and completes tasks
- Respects themselves, their environment, and others
- Takes personal responsibility
- Enjoys working with others
- Invests a good deal of academic and personal effort
Children who would not do well in this program are children whose learning needs or learning styles do not encompass the above qualities and would be better served by a different type of educational program.
Eligible children must have families that are willing to make an extraordinary commitment to their child’s education. Commitment to the Sedona Charter School mission and educational philosophy is manifested in the signing of the Sedona Charter School Partnership Agreement.
