El Centro Charter Schools

Tuition-Free High School 

Whether you need to earn a few remaining high school credits or complete an entire high school program, SIATech’s Independent Study Program might be for you. The program is designed for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) eligible, 16-24 year old students in the El Centro area.

The SIATech El Centro Charter School Independent Study Program is high-tech and highly interactive. Upon admission, each student receives an individual learning plan to outline his or her optimal path to graduation. The school will provide a computer lab staffed with qualified instructors that is open Monday through Friday for students to access the curriculum on-site. Students who have computers at home can access the curriculum online to complete coursework anytime, day or night. In addition, at least one hour a week of individualized time with an instructor provides helpful one-on-one attention to ensure students are on track to graduate. The SIATech El Centro Charter School Independent Study Program’s low student to teacher ratio will ensure that each student receives the tools and motivation needed to succeed.

Like its other classroom-based schools, SIATech’s El Centro Charter School Independent Study Program will provide a robust academic program that emphasizes literacy, numeracy, and workplace readiness skills. The curriculum incorporates California state content standards in an environment of applied academics and software training. The program is aligned with SIATech’s mission of providing Real Learning for Real Life™. Students will graduate with the 21st century skills needed for the workplace and higher education.

Yes! We can help you with a bus pass to get to school

The best way to get a copy is through the Transcript Request Form. There is no charge for transcripts. If you have trouble using the form to request your transcript, email us at info@siatech.org for assistance.

We do not provide replacement diplomas. A diploma is not an official record, it is a ceremonial item used in the graduation ceremony. What I can get for you is an official copy of your transcripts. A transcript is a list of the classes you took and states your graduation date. It is the official record. Click here to request a transcript using the Transcript Request Form.

The student completes the enrollment application and submits it to our office. An administrative representative will call the student for mandatory New Student Orientation. They attend orientation and begin classes as soon as possible. Based on student records that we receive, the student would be placed in courses that are needed to successfully complete their high school diploma. Any state testing that the student needs to complete will be done within the timeline given by California’s Department of Education. As the student completes courses, they are placed in the next course needed. The course program that we utilize is available online for the student to access while they are here in class and while they are home. While in school, they have certified teachers available to assist them with the courses they are enrolled in. As an added feature, the online program we use has a help button that the students can use to get help while they are working from home. (It’s a red HELP button that the student clicks on within the program. Once clicked, a teacher appears who can give them the assistance they need.) once the student has completed all required courses, passed all state tests and has obtained the required 2.0 GPA, they are eligible for a California high school diploma.
