    About Us

    About Us

    Ernest Kimme Charter Academy for Independent Learning (KCAIL) is a VUSD K-12 charter school that includes on-site classes, on-site intervention and support, online classes, independent study and Solano College coursework opportunities.  We do not have attendance boundaries so are open to any student in the VUSD and surrounding districts.  We do have the option to accept or reject applicants based on SARB or expulsion status.  We use multiple data sources to determine if KCAIL is the best learning environment for each student who applies. Interested students should come to our campus for information and enrollment paperwork.  Parents are encouraged to be involved in academics and school activities, however, parent participation is strictly voluntary and not required, per Education Code section 47605 subdivision (n). Parents are required to monitor independent learning as students are required to meet the state minimum for instructional minutes by grade level per Education Code.  Any violation of the Master Agreement may be grounds for non-voluntary disenrollment. KCAIL has earned WASC Candidacy Status and is in the process of accreditation, and has been granted UC eligibility status, but are not currently fully accredited or a-g eligible.
