If you are currently a student, we encourage you to reapply for the 2023/2024 school year, even if you're not sure which school you want to attend in the fall. Doing so will guarantee placement at Verdugo Academy. If you change your mind, let us know over the summer.

The school year has started well and Verdugo Academy students are on the road to success! Parents, please see the link below to update your information on Parent Portal. We had a few emails returned, and we want you to get the important information the district sends out.

I updated the tutoring link! All students now have access to free tutoring through the state. (Thanks, California!)


Hello Verdugo Academy Students and Families!

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year... even though school doesn't start until Wednesday! I'm still learning about the 2022-2023 school year, and I'll let you know everything you need to know as soon as possible. For now, the only assignment is for parents.
