'JCS Manzanita has three distinct programs to serve students of all grade levels. We offer unique programs where students are able to attend up to four days a week with Friday as a work at home day. All classes are taught by credentialed teachers at 5300 Jackson Dr. in La Mesa. Our unique academy/home study structure allows for flexibly but more importantly, the ability for parents to partner in their students' education.
Innovation Centre- La Mesa has small classes with a maximum of 24 students. Students attend class on Monday through Thursday in self contained classrooms. Fridays are home study days where students complete assignments that are created by the classroom teacher at home with their parents. School hours are 9 am - 3 pm. Students can be dropped off beginning at 8:30 am each morning.
Manzanita Middle Academy offers 6th-8th graders core classes of Math, Language Arts, Science and History two days a week on Mondays and Wednesdays. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students may complete home study assignments at home OR, they are encouraged to attend the Academy for personalized learning time. This allows them a structured environment to complete their home study assignments with a teacher available to answer questions and other students to collaborate with. On this optional day students also participate in P.E. and other elective classes. School hours are 8:30 am - 3:30 pm. Supervision begins at 8:00 am each morning.
Manzanita High Academy offers classes Monday - Thursday, with variation depending on the grade level, classes, and the level of support that is needed. Our high school students become self-directed learners using the Summit Learning Platform and curriculum. With support from a caring mentor, students use goal setting to develop self-confidence, to identify their own strengths and weaknesses and to take ownership of their education. School hours are 8:30 am - 3:30 pm. Supervision begins at 8:00 am each morning.
