Spanning from the east side to the west side of Ventura County, River Oaks Academy is a personalized learning public charter school, serving students from TK-12th grade. Known for our high quality education and individual approach for all students, we support a variety of learning styles. River Oaks Academy is not a "one-size-fits-all" program. Our exemplary, credentialed teachers serve as facilitators and coaches for parents and students, guiding the collaboration required to help students achieve both academic and personal goals. The school is both WASC and NCAA accredited.

At River Oaks Academy, we believe that all children are born with the capacity for brilliance.  It is our mission to help each child find, nurture and sustain his/her individual passions. We know that twenty-first century children need to be prepared for academic rigor, and also for life’s other various challenges.  In addition to following the state standards, we also teach students about the importance of self-management and finding a balance between school and life.  Each student has a self-created, personalized learning program which allows them to work at his/her own pace. River Oaks Academy also offers a wide variety of free workshops including: art, music, science, math, language arts, foreign language, life-skills, public speaking, yoga, martial arts, dance and theatre, daily study halls, math and English Language Arts labs, one-on-one tutoring and more. For high school students, options extend to taking classes at the local junior colleges to partaking in any of the career pathways offered throughout the county. Our high school students work towards being prepared for college and career after graduation.

River Oaks Academy provides the cornerstone to helping students become exposed to and prepared for the myriad of opportunities that lie ahead.

Our Mission

To help children find, nurture and sustain the Passion that leads to brilliance.

As a Passion-Powered school, we create environments of individualized learning and direction that help each child find the passion that leads to his or her innate interests, gifts, and talents.

Role of the Family

Through our parent training and support, we help empower the family as the primary source out of which individuals emerge.
