Executive Director's Message

Trivium believes in partnering with parents to provide a solid foundation of knowledge that inspires a passion and confidence in learning. Together we create students who think critically, speak confidently, and achieve their individual goals. Trivium achieves this mission through a variety of methods that have been proven to work. We use a hybrid model that blends the best of homeschooling methods with the best of the classroom experience. Similar hybrid, classical models are also operating successfully in California as well as in other states. The basis of a classical program is to employ the use of critical thinking and logic skills to understand scientific and historic thought processes. The individually-paced subjects done at home are math, spelling, vocabulary building, reading comprehension, writing, keyboarding and physical education. The classroom subjects are history, science, writing, public speaking, art and music.

On behalf of the Trivium Charter School staff, I thank our charter school families, the communities and surrounding areas of Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Lompoc, Santa Maria and Santa Barbara for supporting our students and programs as we continue to grow and expand our learning centers to more communities on California’s Central Coast.
