NCCS Message

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We are truly honored and privileged to serve as you this year and we are  anxious for another amazing year partnering with  staff, students, parents, and community to ensure our students receive an unparalleled educational experience.
Nevada City Charter strives to provide a blended homestudy, on site enrichment, and community based class program that not only supports our students academically, but socially and emotionally. We are proud to offer a challenging educational program, a visual and performing arts program, an ever-growing sports program, and a host of amazing hands on learning opportunities that offer something for everyone. Nevada City Charter encourages its students find their passion, take ownership over their own learning, and to get involved and stay involved. We believe it is important to build and foster positive relationships, a sense of community, and participation in extracurricular opportunities.
The Nevada City Charter School’s philosophy is that learning best occurs when parents play an essential role in their children's education, and that learning goes beyond the schoolyard and school day. We believe that instructional activities are most effective when they are integrated and meaningful.  We empower our students view learning as a lifelong process and to understand that their input is valued, promoted and acknowledged.
We are honored to lead such an outstanding school community and eagerly anticipate a rewarding and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions, concerns, or input at any time.
