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.

Announcing our annual Family Orientations for New and Returning Students!

Orientation is important as this is when we accomplish the last of the paperwork necessary to have your students fully enrolled and have your first meeting with your student(s) teacher(s). While we very much hope you can join us for your Learning Center's Orientation, we do understand that things can (and do) come up, or that you may have something already scheduled. To accommodate these instances, make-up orientations will be arranged at each center. Please let your Center Coordinator know if you will need to schedule a make-up orientation. Upon successfully completing the orientation process, you will receive your curriculum (yay!!!!!). PLEASE NOTE; The Santa Maria Orientation will be held at our new location, 1550 S. College, Santa Maria. If you are enrolling new students, please bring their: 1) Current immunization records (if your student is not fully vaccinated according to the recommended schedule, please bring documentation showing which vaccinations they do have). 2) If you were not able to upload your student’s Birth Certificates during the REG-Online Process, please bring those to orientation. 3) If you were unable to upload a Proof of Residency during the REG-Online process, please bring that to orientation. Proof of Residency must show family name and physical address of Residency. This should be one of the following: A) Current utility bill (if using a phone bill, it must be for a landline please) B) Recent Mortgage Bill C) Recent letter from a Government Agency (not the DMV) D) Recent Rent Receipt or Lease/Rental Agreement ******If you are a returning family who has had a change of address, and did not upload an updated proof of residency during REG-Online, please bring in an updated proof of residency. If you have students entering the seventh grade, and you have complied with the recommended vaccine schedule, please remember to bring documentation showing that they have received their 7th grade booster.
