Our campus offers two innovative programs serving grades K-12.
Magnolia Academy (K-8): This program provides four days of engaging, integrated core classroom instruction with a focus on community connections. Mondays are parent-supported home study days that allow students time to develop mastery on personalized skill goals and complete individual project work.
Renaissance Real-World High School (9-12): Do you want a truly different high school experience? Discover a high school that emphasizes deeper connections with fewer teachers and ensures that every student is prepared for both college and the world of work through rigorous, supported courses, school-organized internships, and concurrent college enrollment. Students graduate with a resume of experiences and skills, a UC-ready transcript, college units and friends that will last a lifetime.

to produce the school’s annual yearbook, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic lockdowns. The group met online on Google Meet. The 108-page book has a superhero theme and exceeds last year’s yearbook by 4 pages. The yearbook is for Magnolia families, and should sell 200 or more copies, said Ms. Carpenter. She continued, “We had so much fun designing the yearbook, growing together as a team, and helping one another.”

Magnolia Student Center staff encouraged students to read during the month of March by creating a student “Rise to the Challenge and Read” reading challenge. Each student was assigned a novel to read, and the one who devoted the most time to reading earned the school’s traveling “Participation Party 'P' (a light-up letter P). Classes with the most Party Ps will win a year-end pizza party.
