San Jose Charter Academy (formally San Jose-Edison Academy) opened it's doors in the Fall of 1998 as a K-5 school, and subsequently expanded to include a Junior Academy, grades 6-8. We are the 142nd public charter school in the state of California. Originally located on Francisquito Avenue in central West Covina, we moved to our new school site, on Alwood Avenue, in 2004. From 1998 to 2011, we were a Charter school managed by EdisonLearning, Inc., while maintaining a partnership with the West Covina Unified School District. On July 1, 2011, we became our own independent charter school.
- SJCA currently enrolls 1160 students in grades kindergarten through eight.
- Our main priority is to provide a World Class Education for each of our students and are very proud of our on-going achievements.

School Accountability Reports Cards (SARC)
Since November 1988, state law has required all public schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). A similar requirement is also contained in the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators.
Although there is great variation in the design of school report cards, they generally begin with a profile that provides background information about the school and its students. The profile usually summarizes the school's mission, goals, and accomplishments. State law requires that the SARC contain all of the following:
* Demographic data
* School safety and climate for learning information
* Academic data
* School completion rates
* Class sizes
* Teacher and staff information
* Curriculum and instruction descriptions
* Post-secondary preparation information
* Fiscal and expenditure data
In addition, NCLB requires that SARC's contain reports concerning the adequate yearly progress of students in achieving state academic achievement standards; Title 1 Program Improvement; graduation rates at the secondary level; and the extent to which highly qualified teachers are teaching core academic subjects.

Single Plan for Student Achievement
California Education Code sections 41507, 41572, and 64001 and the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) require each school to consolidate all school plans for programs funded through the School and Library Improvement Block Grant, the Pupil Retention Block Grant, the Consolidated Application, and NCLB Program Improvement into the Single Plan for Student Achievement.
