6 25 Old Farm Road Thousand Oaks, Martin Manzer, Principal Mike Sanders, Assistant Principal Rachel Guyette, Counselor MISSION STATEMENT Century Academy s mission is to provide a modern, personalized approach to learning that will inspire our students to reach their full academic potential. SCHOOL DESCRIPTION Century Academy offers an alternative program for high school students in the Conejo Valley Unified School District. With great support from the District s school board and administration and the comprehensive high schools, Century Academy is an alternative high school of choice in the Conejo Valley Unified School District. The school was created to address the increasing number of families residing within our district boundaries that are looking for an alternative to the traditional high school. Some of these families have left or were considering leaving the district for other alternatives in surrounding districts or charter schools. For others online learning or home schooling options are attractive. Century Academy tries to meet these needs by offering a more customized approach to learning with flexible scheduling. Students are supported through a blended learning model utilizing online curriculum with traditional teacher support. All exams are taken in our supervised computer lab. Access and school community-building opportunities are available for students through field trips, seminars, activities and community service opportunities. Since Century Academy caters to the independent/self-motivated learner, the emphasis is college preparatory, but students that thrive as independent learners at all levels are accepted if the student s academic needs can be met. Century Academy is able to provide a varied curriculum to meet the needs of our students. The model at Century Academy is designed as a partnership between students, parents, teachers and administrators to provide an educational experience that creates personal enthusiasm for knowledge, and actively engages and empowers the student in the process of learning so that they may be better prepared to responsibly participate in diverse, ever-changing democratic society. Century Academy is a student centered public program that partner s students, parents, and staff to provide a dynamic learning environment that promotes high academic achievement, personal and social responsibility and empowers students to independently meet the challenges of an evolving world. Students select online or hybrid courses and may concurrently attend community college classes or participate in the Regional Occupational Program (ROP). Often students who were not successful at the comprehensive high school thrive at their new alternative setting. Student programs are personalized and designed to meet the goals, and interests of each individual student. Century Academy received a three year recommended status in its Initial WASC visit in the spring of 2011 as well as the California Distinguished School Award in

Curriculum: Our Mission Statement and six ESLRs (Expected School wide Learning Results) are: All graduates will be critical thinkers, effective communicators, knowledgeable problem solvers, and active community members. Panthers are taught to embody the four pillars of our mission: Nobility, Potential, Humanity, and Scholarship. The ESLRs are annually monitored for relevance and serve as overarching goals for daily interaction on campus. Written benchmarks determine the level of ESLR attainment in each content area. All instruction is aligned with state and district content and performance standard. Beginning in 2011 in conjunction with Corwin Press, a 21st Century Skills overlay curriculum and Microsoft Cloud have been piloted to add to our already rigorous curriculum. Newbury Park enjoys fierce community loyalty and a history of academic and co-curricular success. has consistently earned an Academic Performance Index in the top 5% of the high schools in California; as a result, we are a California Distinguished School, and we were named an NCLB Blue Ribbon School in Panthers consistently earn awards in the areas of yearbook, choir, band, drum line, color guard, Academic Decathlon, Mock Trial, speech and debate, journalism and athletics, and more than 70 clubs provide opportunities for service and deepening interests for students.

Each year, approximately 95% of graduates enter colleges and universities all over the world. Culture: For years, was the smallest high school in the district; as a result, a culture of unparalleled individualized support is integral to our success. Counselors and teachers provide personal assistance to families with questions about courses, college, and private issues on a daily basis. Finding open classroom doors well into the evening hours is common. We work especially hard to meet student needs, especially those who are at-risk or whose first language is not English. We continuously identify obstacles to student achievement, implement action plans to address them, and work with the community to overcome them. Community support takes many forms: input from all stakeholders led to the development of our block schedule; a tutorial/homework Help and intervention classes for at-risk students. As a result of parent, community, staff, and student collaboration, Panther Pride has become more than a catchphrase; it is a way of life. 4

10 INTERNATIONAL BACLAUREATE NEWBURY PARK HIGH SCHOOL, AN Overview of the IBO The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), founded in 1968, is a recognized leader in the field of international education. It is a non-profit, mission-driven foundation that works with 2,508 schools to develop and offer three challenging programs in 132 countries to approximately 680,000 students. Newbury Park High School offers the Diploma Program (DP), a rigorous pre-university course of studies for highly motivated secondary school students. This broad and balanced curriculum requires 11 th and 12 th grade IB diploma candidates to study languages, a social science, an experimental science, mathematics, and an elective which is often an art. Wherever possible, the subjects are approached from an international perspective. As an alternative to the full diploma program, students may test in one or more IB subjects for Certificate recognition. The IB diploma is recognized by universities throughout North America and the world. Many schools take IB participation into account in evaluation of applicants, and most give credit for successful completion of the diploma, or certificate exams. Students pursuing the IB diploma at fulfill all California state education requirements and can graduate with a diploma from and one from IB. Ninth and tenth grade students who wish to participate in the diploma program follow an IB Pathway of courses in preparation for the rigorous junior and senior years. The IB Mission Statement The International Baccalaureate Organization aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the IBO works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. How are the students assessed? All academic courses in the IB Program are rigorously tested. Responsibility for academic judgments about the quality of candidates work rests with 5,000 examiners worldwide, led by chief examiners with international authority in their fields adhering to uniform standards set by the IB. Each student completes internal assignments: essays, taped orals, portfolios, or lab work done within the curriculum. These Internal Assessments are scored against specific rubrics and scores are submitted to IB. Samples of the student work, selected randomly, are rescored by an examiner assigned by IB in order to maintain standardized application of the rubric. Students complete the process with examinations during May of their junior and senior years, scored by external examiners. The final grade combines Internal Assessment and May exam scores. 6
