The Orange County Board of Education and the Orange County Department​ of Education are dedicated to ensuring that Orange County students ​graduate from high school college and career ready.

Included in the educational options for Orange County's children and parents are charter schools that provide instruction to any of grades TK-12.  Charter schools are usually developed or organized by a group of teachers, parents, and community members. They are typically authorized by an existing local public school board.  Specific goals and operating procedures for the​ school are detailed in the charter petition.

Charter status frees the school from many of the state statutes and regulations that apply to school districts. The law requires that a charter school be nonsectarian in its programs, admission policies, employment practices, and all other operations, and prohibits the conversion of a private school to a charter school.​​​
