Mission and Vision Statement

  • Mission

    The mission of Madera County Independent Academy is to broaden the educational choices and opportunities for students and families who live in Madera County and surrounding areas.  The instructional method will emphasize the whole child and frame its academic components within an artistic, creative, and imaginative context allowing each child’s full potential to unfold.


    The vision of MCIA is for all students to be self-motivated, competent, life-long learners, to improve employability of youth by high school completion, and to encourage post-secondary education.

    Schoolwide Learner Outcomes (SLO's)

    Our three Schoolwide Learner Outcomes accurately reflect a wide range of viewpoints.

    Our students:

    • are proficient thinkers, who can transfer skills to new situations, using logical reasoning to make decisions in their own life, and communicate effectively in a variety of situations.

    • exhibit motivation, discipline, respect, compassion, and a connection to their community in order to promote life-long learning and life improvement.

    • feel a connection to their school and a commitment to enhancing their school learning experience.
