SPCA offers K-12 grade students a personalized educational experience through our home school program and independent study program.
Home School Program
SPCA offers home schooling students in Sutter, Butte, Yolo, Colusa, Placer and Yuba Counties an educational experience that is personalized to each student. SPCA staff work cooperatively with parent educators to develop an individual student-learning plan. Each learning plan is supported with generous and competitive discretionary funding to purchase curriculum and vendor course instruction. Each parent educator is paired with a credentialed teacher located in the student’s community.
Independent Study Program
Our independent study program offers students more direct instruction, but with the flexibility that accommodates for a variety of learning styles. Students meet one-on-one with an independent study teacher weekly. Each student receives a generous academic budget that supports a personalized learning plan. Staff will work with students to choose books, activities, and supplies that are suited for their individual needs.

Our Core Values:
Creating Community Leaders
At Sutter Peak Charter Academy, we work to cultivate community leaders, students who apply the critical thinking skills they've developed in the classroom to solve problems within their community. Students will be invited to start a community service project which they will work on throughout the year, ending in a report where they will reflect on the impact they’ve had on their community, what they’ve learned, and they could have done differently.
By the end of their education at Sutter Peak, each student will have a portfolio of projects they have established in their community to reflect on. These can range from tutoring younger students to creating a new student guide showing new peers where the library is and other resources or holding a sock drive for the homeless. Our aim is to see students understand that they are citizens of a larger, global world, and begin discovering how they fit into it.
