Ventura Charter School of Arts & Global Education opened its doors in 2006 when the Ventura County Board of Education approved its original petition for a full five year term. The School was renewed for five year terms in 2011 and 2016. In 2021, the California Legislature enacted AB 130 which allowed high performing charter schools to be renewed for seven year terms.
Ventura Charter School's students out performed all other state students in 14 of 16 academic indicators and due to the performance of the following student subgroups, VCS was granted a seven year renewal term from 2021 to 2028.
Distance From Standard Subgroup Comparisons for VCS Students
91 percentile for socio-economically disadvantaged students
88 percentile for Latinx students
76 percentile for special education students
83 percentile for all sub groups
I'm very impressed with the level of academic curiosity and maturity that the VCS students possess. They speak their minds in class and they have great relationships with the adults on campus. Your program inspires kids to understand the "why" versus the "what" of education. --Jason Dinkler, Foothill Technology High School Teacher
