Shasta Charter Academy was founded in 1999 in partnership with Shasta Union High School District as Shasta Secondary Home School by Lynn Peebles. As a free public charter school, SSHS served students in Shasta County and its surrounding counties, using the Personalized Learning model of education, in which each family, based on advisement by an experienced teacher, chooses the methods by which each student is educated for each course.
When the school began, it consisted of Mr. Peebles and 26 students and has grown to over 20 staff and serves in excess of 300 students per year in grades 9-12.
In Fall 2014, the school name was changed to Shasta Charter Academy because the school has evolved to serve students with 6 different learning methods and we needed a name that more accurately fit how we now serve students. We are still the same great school with the same great staff, who daily serve our students and family with care, pride and professionalism.
