Orcutt Academy High School



School Profile:

Located on three sites, the Orcutt Academy includes classroom-based learning (on two separate campuses) and an independent study program in a third location.  The school currently has 607 students enrolled at its high school, 136 at its TK-8 campus, and 50 in its K-8 independent study program, for a total of 793 students overall. Unlike other schools in the Orcutt Union School District, the Orcutt Academy must recruit every student. This has created a business model that puts customer satisfaction in the forefront, with the success and survival of the Orcutt Academy depending on positive reviews from students, parents, and the community.  The entire staff, TK-12, has embraced this concept, as demonstrated by the positive feedback on school climate surveys from all stakeholders and increasing interest in enrollment.

Mission Statement:

The mission of Orcutt Academy Charter High School is to provide our students with a rigorous academic program, extracurricular opportunities for all, and a tight-knit school culture where students are connected with our teachers and staff. The overarching goal is to equip each student with the ability to be college/career-ready upon graduation.

Key principles govern this collaboration: personal relationships, respect, and understanding among all students, parents, and staff at Orcutt Academy.
