Parents receive routine written reports from the school that will outline their child’s current status. These reports include their current Level, the number of credits they have earned, the number of credits they have lost with the description as to why, their current academic course of study, with the number of chapters completed and the number of chapters still needed to be completed. Also a progress report written from the student that outlines what they feel they have learned, what progress they have made, and what issues they have been working on. These written reports give each parent/guardian detailed information on their child’s progress and are designed to minimize the need to make expensive telephone calls to the school.
We believe our youth are a premier source of wisdom and leadership in their families as well as their communities. California Leadership Academy provides our students with a strong academic program in order to help them achieve their dreams and become the leaders they were meant to be.
