Our Mission

To provide a rigorous, well-rounded education – with a focus on science and sustainability – that helps students acquire the academic and personal skills they need to excel in higher education, think creatively, engage in a diverse society, and pursue their dreams.

Our Vision

To establish educational excellence as a cornerstone of an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable future for Catheys Valley and the greater foothill community.

To fulfill our Mission and Vision, SFCS offers:

  • An integrative, place-based, college preparatory curriculum for all students
  • A cooperative and caring learning environment
  • A balanced approach to the development of the mind and body
  • Opportunities for collaboration between students, teachers and staff, families, and the community

SFCS emphasizes hands-on approaches to learning and discovery. It’s not what SFCS teaches that is innovative, but how. Research shows that children learn academic concepts best by first experiencing them in familiar and practical ways with their own hands. SFCS teaches California state-mandated curriculum standards through a place-based approach to learning that has been demonstrated to increase student motivation and achievement.
