JCS ICT Program Description

At The JCS Innovation Centre Temecula, our goal is to develop

passionate life-long learners through differentiated and personalized instruction.


The JCS Innovation Centre Temecula is a program of Julian Charter School. We are a K-8 small group instruction and home study academy. Small group instruction is typically offered Monday-Thursday and Friday is a home study day.

During small group instruction, students participate in hands-on, activity-based Common Core instruction. Our qualified teachers pull from a variety of resources to create meaningful lessons that target both the academic and interest levels of the students.

This program is an excellent fit for students who enjoy working independently as well as collaborating with others. Students are expected to contribute fully to partners/groups and demonstrate learning that meets or exceeds grade-level expectations.

What is Home Study?

At JCS ICT, we value the parent-teacher partnership. Teachers and parents partner together in the education of each student. Approximately 70% of student learning occurs on campus and 30% is home study.

70% (Teachers/On-Campus) + 30% (Parents/Home Study)

= 100% Child’s Education

On home study days, students complete assignments at home under the direction of a parent. This makes up about 30% of their education, over 50 school days per year. Typically, each home study day is equivalent to 4 hours of work. Home study assignments will be posted on the website. A portion of the assignments will be determined by the classroom teacher. The other portion will focus on a special project or learning experience chosen by the student.

Home study assignments are designed to:

  • give time to review or go deeper with a concept
  • extend lessons that are being taught on campus
  • prepare students for upcoming lessons
  • provide students a “voice” and “choice” about what they want to learn
  • be uniquely personalized and differentiated
  • promote family involvement in the learning process
  • allow students global access to learning opportunities

Daily Homework:

Nightly homework is generally limited and may include the following:

  • Reading for 20-30 minutes
  • Unfinished work may be sent home for completion
  • Assignments to support students in learning a new concept
  • Assignments to re-teach a concept

Please see your child's teacher for grade-level homework specifications.
