[SCVi Charter School] – SCVi Charter School is inviting high school freshman and sophomores and their parents to attend a special informational presentation on the school’s International Baccalaureate program.
“This is a great opportunity for students and their parents to learn about the benefits of the IB program, which is available to SCVi learners in their junior and senior years,” said Kara Broadway, IB coordinator for SCVi. “We’re asking that both the learner and a parent attend the informational meeting.”
The workshop is scheduled Tuesday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Etta James room at the tuition-free public charter school, located at 28060 Hasley Canyon Road.
International Baccalaureate is a worldwide two-year academic program that offers seven courses, an extended essay, and a creativity, action, and service component. IB classes are open to all students who are willing to challenge themselves with college-level coursework and creative problem solving.
Matt Watson, upper school director at SCVi, said the IB program prepares the school’s learners to be global citizens.
“The IB curriculum goes a long way in helping us prepare our learners. It prepares them for the world in which they are living now–an ever shrinking global community where leaders are expected to engage in critical thinking and analysis on deep and complicated issues,” he said. “It prepares them for their next step, giving them tremendous advantages when it comes to college applications. It prepares them for their future, teaching them to analyze complex themes and issues in our world.”
SCVi Charter School is an open and fun multi-age classroom environment that promotes and celebrates independent thinking, cooperation and the development of critical 21st century skills. SCVi emphasizes project-based learning in a literacy-and math-rich environment that also promotes social and emotional development.
It is the only school in the Santa Clarita Valley that offers the International Baccalaureate option.
Watson added: “We chose the IB program for SCVi because it aligns well with our school’s mission: ‘Free to Think, Inspired to Lead.’ It provides a well-rounded, internationally focused education. We welcome parents and students in 9th and 10th grades to come to our informational evening to learn more.”
SCVi offers project-based K-12 curriculum and student-led assessment with global and culturally diverse influences. The tuition-free charter school emphasizes an inquiry-based, learner-centered approach to education. SCVi’s primary goal is to help learners lead a successful and fulfilled life while contributing to the world around them.
