All students have the ability to be self-confident, lifelong learners that recognize the intrinsic, individual, and communal value of academic achievement and educational success. Through active participation and engagement, Monterey County Home Charter School students will progressively enhance their academic and social skills as they become effective communicators, skillful critical thinkers, expert problem solvers, responsible users of technology, and exemplary citizens.

Monterey County Home Charter School provides a safe, positive, and dynamic non-classroom based learning environment that challenges students in a nurturing and supportive fashion. MCHCS provides each student with individualized, state-standard-aligned resources best suited to match their specific needs, skills, and interests. This approach encourages students to reach their highest academic potential and provides them with the skills necessary for transition to post-secondary education and training, college, and to the establishment of a successful career.
