Temescal Academy is a small learning community adjacent to the main Palisades Charter High School campus. With an enrollment between 60-75 students, Temescal Academy is dedicated to helping students overcome obstacles, recover academic credit, graduate and receive a diploma.
Temescal students have been referred by PCHS counselors, deans and administrators. We also serve students with IEP's and Section 504 plans.
Temescal Academy offers students, who have good attendance and work habits, the chance to earn credits at an accelerated rate. Students who come to Temescal Academy a semester or year behind in academic credit have the opportunity to take extra classes, receive work experience credits, and to earn bonus credits. Students who take advantage of Temescal's program are able to transfer back to Pali to graduate or stay at Temescal and graduate on time or even early.
Temescal's mission is to educate our diverse student population by developing their skills and talents to help them make positive contributions to our global society. We do this by providing a high quality education to all our students through collaborative instruction that focuses on the development of academic and social skills necessary for the optimal development of the students' potential. It is paramount that at Temescal Academy we create an academically stimulating, safe and nurturing environment for our students. We strongly promote academic achievement and challenge our students to strive for success. We encourage our students to be responsible citizens who are culturally sensitive and equipped to meet the challenges presented to them in a changing and technological and diverse world.
Students are required to participate in an intake meeting with the Coordinator of Temescal Academy prior to being enrolled. Please contact your child's counselor to get a referral.
