— Insight Schools of California students return to online public
schools August 29 —
SIMI VALLEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Students at Insight
Schools of California (ISCA) will begin their 2016-2017 school year
on August 29. This marks the third year of operation in the state for
the accredited, full-time, online public charter schools.
ISCA serves students in grades 9 through 12 who reside in many counties
in California, including Los Angeles, Kern, San Bernardino, Ventura,
Imperial, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, Alameda, Amador, Calaveras,
Contra Costa, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Sacramento and Santa Clara.
Teachers and staff work with students and their families to help them
overcome obstacles with a unique and supportive approach. Using the
award-winning K12 curriculum, ISCA students are provided the assistance,
guidance and individualized support to help them succeed. As a public
school option, there is no tuition.
ISCA sends students the educational materials they need at no cost to
families – the back-to-school box could include a variety of items, such
as geometry workbooks; petri dishes for hands-on science experiments;
and rock samples for a geology class. Common household and office
supplies (e.g. printer ink and paper) are not included in the materials
“A struggling student may be one who has failed certain courses, is
bored or turned off by school, misses school days, feels unsafe at
school, or perhaps has received suspensions or been left back. Many
factors can contribute to these struggles,” said Melissa Garcia,
Director of Insight Schools of California. “We specialize in helping
students catch up and excel in their schooling.”
At ISCA, students attend school from the safety of home, where they can
focus on their studies without distractions or peer pressure and with
the help of state-certified teachers and caring counselors. The daily
structure and lessons are provided through a stimulating online school
environment where students are able to interact with their peers.
In addition to the award-winning curriculum provided by K12, ISCA offers
Social-Emotional Learning that teachers implement in order to provide
students with the encouragement, strategies, and confidence to become
successful young adults. Additionally, students can take advantage of
the quarter system model which ISCA operates. This program enables
students to concentrate on just three courses each quarter (typically a
nine-week period). This program often helps students get back on track
and graduate from high school on time. ISCA is still accepting
enrollments for this fall. To learn more about enrollment requirements
