SAVA SCUSD is a Gateway Community Charters charter school. Gateway Community Charters was created in April of 2003 with a vision to create quality schools of choice in the greater Sacramento region with a particular emphasis on serving under-served and at-risk populations. Each of our schools has a unique mission and vision and has a track record of serving students within the charter school construct. Gateway Community Charters has a total of nine charter schools with Twin Rivers Unified, San Juan Unified School District, Elk Grove Unified School District, Sacramento City Unified School District, and Yolo County Office of Education as the LEA/oversight agencies.
