Choose Smart. Choose Carpe Diem.
Carpe Diem Innovative School – Westwood is a free, public charter school educating students in grades 6 – 11 (for the 2016-17 school year) in a small and safe campus. We utilize a highly effective blended learning model combining a rigorous curriculum with classroom instruction led by highly effective teachers and individualized support from personal coaches. We educate with knowledge, equip with character and empower students for college, career and life.
Learning is a life-long endeavor and we believe students shouldn’t be constrained by the typical classroom or traditional learning models teaching just to average students. Students learn at their own pace and master material prior to moving on to the next level.
Students are met at their instructional level to build competency and confidence through hard work and encouragement. Each student receives an Individual Learning Plan to accelerate learning to maximize his or her full potential and meet career/educational goals.
Our school provides the necessary flexibility to foster growth and ensure success of every student. Business Week and U.S. News & World Report rated our schools among the best high school programs in the nation. Historically, Carpe Diem students average completion of two years of curriculum in just one school year.
