What Sets MY Academy Apart?
MYA is a tuition-free California non-classroom-based public charter school that educates students seeking a personalized option to the traditional education model. MYA utilizes an Enriched Virtual model of blended learning where students get the flexibility of virtual learning combined with personalized 1:1 instruction from a credentialed teacher. Learning sessions are face-to-face; the teachers go to the students and meet with them in their communities, at libraries, community centers, and similar public facilities, providing our students with the best of both worlds.
MYA serves students in grades TK-12, and young adults ages 18-24 seeking a high school diploma.
MYA is WASC accredited and offers UC/CSU a-g coursework and class lists that are accepted by the NCAA and NAIA. Our independent study program offers three pathways to graduation; At-Promise, College and Career, and Credit Recovery. MYA offers multiple calendars each year to provide students and families greater flexibility to pursue interests and take advantage of opportunities.
At MYA, we know how important it is to provide our students with a personalized course of study, which is why every MYA student gets a “MY PLAN” – Motivated Youth Personalized Learning Adventure Now. This is developed based on their own interests and support levels. Our staff provides the support every student needs to reach their goals. That’s one of the many reasons students thrive at MYA – working from home, on the road, or anywhere their experiences and adventures take them.
At MY Academy, YOU PICK what works for you!
MY Academy operates multiple calendars each school year to provide students and families greater flexibility to pursue interests and take advantage of opportunities. Each calendar is divided into nine months of instruction and three months of vacation.
