Hello Cajon Valley Families,
We are excited to announce that the proposal for a new Cajon Valley school was approved by the CVUSD school board. The proposed TK-14 charter school, Bostonia Global, will be an educational model specifically designed to develop the unique strengths, interests, and values of each student on their pathway to gainful employment. This proposal comes to the Cajon Valley Governing Board from several years of community, staff, and student input. Students enrolled in the school will be provided an educational experience where they can begin working on their career and college aspirations during their middle and high school years.
Transitions and Timelines:
As was the original plan, Bostonia will transition to a grades TK-8 school. Our first priority is to upgrade facilities and create learning spaces on the Bostonia campus designed for our middle school-aged students. Students will have the opportunity to experience Extraordinary Learning Opportunities, have an educational environment with individualized attention, be provided with professional networks and career mentors, and be provided with an education grounded in students' strengths, values, and dreams.
Now that the Governing Board has approved the petition for the Bostonia TK-14 Global, we will qualify to apply for start-up and planning grants from government, non-profit, and private venture capital. Our target date for opening as a TK-14 Academy is August 2021. We have already submitted applications and are being considered for startup and planning funding. Board approval is a requirement for these competitive grants.
The opening of Bostonia TK-14 Global is contingent upon attaining both startup funding and also securing facilities that can meet the needs of this unique school vision. There is also much work to be done on our school vision, coursework, curriculum, and design.
