Bachrodt Charter is currently in its fifth year of conversion charter status. As a result, we are beginning the process to renew for an additional five years. Please join us for a Charter Information Night, where we will share information with our families about the upcoming renewal process as well as asking for input from you regarding our programs. The night is planned for Tuesday, November 27 at 7pm in the cafeteria. We look forward to having you in attendance and to hearing from you as we prepare to begin another five years as SJUSD’s only conversion charter.
The Bachrodt Academy Community is for our students to acquire knowledge, skills, and values which promote success, positive self-worth, responsibility and a desire for lifelong learning in a healthy, safe, and orderly environment.

To provide a safe learning environment which promotes respect for self and others.

To encourage parent and community support and involvement.
Bachrodt Charter Academy is dedicated to providing a quality education for all students in a safe, caring environment. Within our instructional program, students are taught the 21st century skills that will be necessary to compete in tomorrow’s global economy. Critical thinking, collaboration, and effective communication are just some of the skills that are taught and modeled for students on a daily basis. Through our school’s charter, we seek to incorporate these skills in a variety of settings, such as technology, creative arts, and our Two-Way Bilingual Immersion strand. These three components in addition to the focus on parent involvement are the blocks upon which our charter rests.
I look forward to working with your students this year and look forward to meeting you as we move forward on this academic journey. My goal, as well as the goal of our hard-working staff, is to help your student achieve success by meeting or exceeding district and state academic standards. Along the way, we reinforce the citizenship skills that will help us achieve new academic heights—safety, respect, responsibility, productivity, and kindness. I encourage you to partner with us as we move throughout the year and invite you to become involved at Bachrodt and help us help your student. Together, we can attain the goal of preparing all students for the demand of an ever-changing world much more easily.
