School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2018—19)
Humphreys College Academy of Business, Law and Education "ABLE" is devoted to providing effective instruction and related learning experiences to students. The Charter School views itself primarily as a teaching institution how ever it has long serve the families of greater San Joaquin County as an educational partner. Much like the founders of the College, the founders of the Charter School believe that any sound program must be concerned first with meeting the educational needs of the individual student and, second, with ensuring the program (for most students) contains elements of general and occupational education that introduces the student to the application of their classroom experiences into the work setting. By experiencing that relevancy and sharing those experiences with their classmates and instructors, the student emerge from high school with a well-rounded and complete education. Woven into that experience is the understanding that learning does not cease after the completion of high school and that a four year degree is well within the reach of each student of the Charter School.
ABLE Mission Statement
The mission of the Charter School is to provide a variety of structured pathways for the development of graduates and prepare them to enter college or business (w th the understanding each of these paths are not exclusive of the other). Students receive specific and advanced course work, which challenge them to be reflective and analytic learners using their knowledge for spirited discourse and applying that same knowledge to the structure of the workplace.
Vision for Learning
The Charter School's students will graduate from high school with career pathway competencies and will make a successful transition into their postsecondary education or possibly entry-level, advanced, or professional level careers. The Charter School maintains a student population representative of the demographics and all subgroups of grade K-12 students who are enrolled within the attendance boundaries of San Joaquin County. Students graduate prepared for careers in law, business, and education and will have the academic skills to become productive citizens and to pursue a post-secondary education.
Objectives of the Charter School:
• All students will graduate from high school
• All students will improve their academic competence
• All students will be effective users of technology
• All students will go on to postsecondary education, employment, or the military
• All students will become self-motivated, competent, and life-long learners
• All teaching staff will embed technology skills in cross-curricular units
All teaching staff will embed the adopted school SLO's (Student Learning Outcomes) as goals and objectives which will help drive instruction across the curriculum. Through partnerships with the community, business, and post-secondary resources through Humphreys College and its academic partners, all students are be exposed to real life job skills, employment opportunities, and professional development curriculum.
The Charter School also provides the students w ith individualized attention for remediation and advanced study noting that both are be structured to enhance the in-class learning experiences of the students and not to single them out from their classmates.
A major element of the educational program includes the exposure of the students to accredited concurrent credits as part of their secondary academic education, w ith a philosophy that strives to instill in each student a sense of self-discipline, self-confidence, and independence. The Charter School is dedicated to being an active member of the local business community through w ork-based and w orksite learning related to the individual student's career areas of interest. The Charter School also emphasizes real-life, project-based learning in an innovative educational setting. While the primary focus of the Charter School will be for all students to obtain a high school diploma, the Charter School offers each student the unique opportunity to earn accredited college credits. These credits w ill allow each student to begin a journey tow ard post-secondary study often beyond the reach of many of the urban students that the Charter School w ill seek to serve.
Each student initially be exposed to a general high school curriculum pathway that allow s them the opportunity to transfer between the three offered pathways in their first year of study. Once they declare their pathway, their educational program will focus on a career of their choice through relevant instruction aligned towards, or within, that professional career path or skill. Throughout their educational experience the students are exposed to a variety of postsecondary institutions (including Humphreys College) and have the opportunity to gain high school credits through accredited coursew ork. However, in their junior and senior years the students w ill be enrolled in courses that offer concurrent course credit fulfilling their high school elective credits as well as embarking them on a path of post-secondary study that would prepare them to realize a four year degree. In all cases, the Charter School’s secondary curriculum meets the California UC / CSU college system entrance requirements allowing students to pursue their four year degree at any postsecondary institution in the country.
Students will be able to choose an identified career pathways in business, law or education. These same pathw ays are outlined in the accompanying charts and as follows: Business, Law /Criminal Justice, and Education.
