Why Vista Charter Academy?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, Vista Charter Academy is a school like no other – one that can lead to a lifetime of success. We set high standards, focus on real-world skills, problem solving, and how to be a good citizen. Our exceptional teachers meet students at their ability level and challenge them to go beyond. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

Please remember, students do NOT need to be in school uniform for the school pictures! You are welcome to complete your online forms ahead of time. If you haven't completed these forms, you will have both computer labs set up as well as staff available to help with this process. All families will need to complete the free and reduced lunch application. If your family is receiving any public assistance, please have your CASE number available – this is different than your bridge card number. Also volunteer forms will need a parent’s driver’s license number. Please remember to bring cash, your checkbook or your credit card to pay for the pictures you wish to order. Even if you do not wish to order pictures, we still need to photograph your student(s) for the yearbook. Order forms will be available to you tomorrow.
