High school students.
SAVA charter schools are free public charter schools offering a personalized education path for every student. Instead of the traditional one-size-fits-all classroom, we seek to motivate and encourage students to be independent learners. Our blended-learning model provides one-on-one and small group learning opportunities. As a result, each student receives individualized instruction and support from our teachers and staff. This personal attention and guidance is often the crucial ingredient to student success.
