The Elk Grove Charter School is committed to creating individualized educational opportunities for students by combining classroom instruction, independent study instruction, and community and workplace educational experiences. This educational approach is for students who seek an alternative to the traditional classroom-only instructional approach. It is also an alternative to the Elk Grove Unified School District’s comprehensive and continuation high school programs.
Enrollment for the 2015-16 school year is impacted! For more information, please see our admissions section in the links above.
If you are a graduating senior and are interested in a career in healthcare, see the flyer below for more information about how to apply to Allied Health Learning Community's Program at Sacramento City College.

Every May we have a Career Day for our students where we have guest speakers come and talk to our students about their career or careers they teach/prepare students for.
We’d like our students to gain real insight about different careers whether it requires a degree, certificate or other formal training. This will expose our student to the different career opportunities and educational pathways that exists.
Our Career Day is Wednesday, May 11th and want guest speakers to cover the morning between 8:45-10:30 and/or afternoon between 1pm-3:05pm.
Please contact our school counselor, Lisa Valenzuela if you are interested in promoting your career and sharing the following:
∙ Your personal background including challenges you’ve overcome
∙ The education/training/application process required to land your career
∙ The job criteria/requirements: skills, tasks, responsibilities, including how your education/training applies in your work and personal life

Dear Parents/Guardians, April 13, 2016
As the school year winds to a close, we enter into the survey season where we ask for your input on EGCS programs, environment, academics, and EGUSD district services. In the coming weeks, you will receive a variety of surveys from both EGCS and EGUSD. We ask for your participation in providing us with this valuable information.
As a school site, we use survey information to assist in planning new programs, communication tools, academics, instruction, curriculum development, and much more. We try our best to keep the surveys short and to the point. We post all surveys on the school’s website (www.egcharter.com) and the school’s various social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram); in addition, there are times we send paper and pencil surveys home with your students (ex. EGUSD surveys) and as previously stated, this information is valuable to the school, district, and your student.
Thank you for your participation and input and we are fortunate to have you as a partner with EGCS. Go Falcons!
