The Freedom Academy of Imperial Valley is an Alternative School of Choice, the only one of its kind in Imperial County. It is adjacent to the Holtville High School campus, which is located 120 miles east of San Diego, 225 miles southeast of Los Angeles, 40 miles west of the California/Arizona border, and 20 miles northeast of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. It is a rural, agricultural area and serves approximately 20 students.
The Freedom Academy of Imperial Valley first opened in August of 2012. It offers students from Imperial Valley access to a rich, standards based curriculum with strong levels of support for students and parents. As an alternative school-of-choice, we are able to enroll students from throughout Imperial County while providing a dynamic alternative to traditional classroom instruction. The online curriculum is unique in the Imperial Valley, giving students access to a rigorous academic experience utilizing nationally recognized educational platforms while maintaining local support and monitoring as well as access to subject tutors from within Holtville Unified's teaching staff. Elementary and middle school students have access to on-site instruction and support, as well as a rich diversity of cultural experiences. Our high school students have the option of participating on-site, at home, or a combination of both. They receive high quality instruction at their pace and have the option of participating in Holtville High School's sports, music, agricultural, and extra-curricular clubs. We are excited about our prospects for growth and educational enrichment.
