Julian Charter School (JCS) is a publicly funded independent study charter school Charter school sponsored by the Julian Union Elementary District. Although the main office is in Julian, California JCS serves over 2000 students across San Diego, Riverside, Orange and Imperial counties. Established in 2000, the school serves approximately 2100 students in kindergarten through grade 12 via homeschooling or small academy locations.

History[edit]

The school is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

Campus[edit]

Though sponsored by Julian Union Elementary District, JCS has academy programs throughout the Southern California region. The programs are located in Temecula (previously Murrieta), Encinitas, Pine Valley, Alpine, and San Diego.[2] The charter school system is limited to remain within the counties bordering the home county of San Diego.

Curriculum[edit]

High school curriculum includes math, science, social studies and English. Online support is available in the form of asynchronous tutoring classes, discussion boards, and an online learning management system. High school students may choose either college prep (more rigorous classes preparing them for entrance into the UC and CSU system) or non-college prep course of study. For those students who have fallen behind their peers, Julian Charter School offers an onsite intensive program (INSITE) to help students succeed. In order to graduate, students must have 220 Carnegie units, and must pass the CAHSEE (California High School Exit Exam). This school is publicly funded and fully credentialed to confer high school diplomas by the State of California and the Julian School District.[3]

Extracurricular activities[edit]

JCS has a strong intermural sports program for academy and home study students. Teams compete in flag football, soccer, and basketball.
