- About Us
Sacramento Academic and Vocational Academy is a 7th-12th grade public charter school offering a personalized education path for each of our students. Instead of the traditional one-size-fits-all classroom, we seek to motivate and encourage students to be independent learners. Our blended-learning model provides one-on-one and small group learning opportunities. As a result, each student receives individualized instruction and support from our teachers and staff. This personal attention and guidance is often the crucial ingredient to student success.
At SAVA, we provide high-quality curriculum aligned to Common Core State Standards, instructional support for all students, and career exploration and preparation for life after graduation. SAVA students have the opportunity to meet requirements for graduation with a high school diploma as well as meet the requirements for entry level employment, apprenticeship programs, post-secondary career technical training or transition to two or four year colleges.
In addition to providing a multi-faceted approach to learning, we also emphasize the importance of community involvement and self-discovery. Each SAVA student completes a service learning project with a local community business or organization and has the chance to experience how it feels to make a difference in their community. We believe that the combination of individual support, high-quality instruction, and personal development opportunities produces self-directed, life-long learners ready to meet the challenges of the future.
All high school students are required to enroll in our Career Technical Education (CTE) courses and encouraged to complete one or more pathways. Each CTE pathway is a robust 2-year course of study with a hands-on learning approach in sectors such as Transportation, Public Service, Arts, Media & Entertainment, Fashion & Interior Design, Agricultural & Natural Sciences, Building & Construction Trades, Manufacturing & Product Development, Health Science & Medical Technology, and Hospitality, Recreation & Tourism, . Many of these courses offer students the opportunity to earn high school and college credit at the same time. To round out our program offerings, we provide interactive learning opportunities and experiences for our students through elective courses and extracurricular activities such as Art, Teen Leadership, Creative Writing and Basketball.”
