The Altus Institute creates and oversees charter schools that successfully transform students into self-sufficient, productive citizens through supportive, supervised independent study – a method proven to ensure students become self-motivated and self-disciplined, advance academically and socially, graduate with competence, and successfully obtain employment or secondary education.
Altus schools are unique because they transform students. Students become self-sustaining learners and employable, self-sufficient citizens. They are inspired to be self-motivated, self-disciplined, productive, and socially adept. If academically lagging, they rapidly catch up to grade level with a C or better GPA. They achieve academic and social competence and graduate.
Altus schools focus on improving student achievement, creating prototypes for educational reform, and improving the quality of life for students, their families, and their communities.
