  • Mission:

    It is the philosophy of the District to cultivate a well rounded education for each student emphasizing the basic skills needed to function as Individual, Family Member, Citizen, Learner, Producer, and Consumer. The District believes that education is an ongoing, lifelong process that extends beyond the formal constraints of the school environment. Education must be the product of a joint venture between the home, the school, and the community.
    The mission of the Camas Valley Community Charter School is to educate students so that they are prepared for continuing education and the world of work by capitalizing on the school’s small size and unique community partnerships to enable students to become independent, productive citizens of the world.
