SCVi Public Charter School Holds Open House

| Community | July 14, 2017

Families who are looking for an alternative to neighborhood public schools can attend an open house at Santa Clarita Valley International Charter School on Tuesday, July 25 from 6-8 p.m. Held every summer, the event brings prospective students, their parents and staff members at SCVi together for tours of the public charter school.

Classes range from TK-12 and the school’s educational philosophy is described as promoting project-based learning with an innovative, research-based method of instruction. The school says that students are encouraged to tackle engaging projects about real-world issues.

“During the past 10 years, the facilitators (teachers) and staff at SCVi have worked tirelessly to create a learning environment that values critical, creative thought and meets each learner, or student, exactly where they are in their educational journey,” said Amber Raskin, who co-founded iLEAD Schools 10 years ago with veteran educator and principal Dawn Evenson. “Dawn and I are so proud of iLEAD’s success over the past decade, and we invite prospective learners, their families and our community to learn more about what sets us apart.”

According to SCVi leadership, “They use critical thought, inquiry and synthesis to create solutions and present their findings to their peers. The school also maintains a unique emphasis on employing teaching methods that foster social-emotional development and personal strengths, while encouraging social and self-awareness. The school incorporates principles of project-based learning into dance, music, theatre, media and visual art. Sports are offered from kindergarten through 12th grade, with upper school teams participating in the CIF Omega League. The young athletes can play basketball, soccer, flag football, volleyball, cross-country, softball, baseball, golf, and there are equestrian teams.

SCVi is located at 28060 Hasley Canyon Road in Castaic. For more information, visit scvi-k12.org.
