Our Mission



Dehesa Charter is where Student Driven Learning and Personalized Educational Planning Meet. Our model teaches students to love learning, achieve goals, and puts them in control of their Future. 

A key component of the "Dehesa Difference" is our Learning Styles model. We offer the "Self-Portrait Online Learning Styles Profile" to enrolled Dehesa students and their homeschooling parent.  Scoring is automatic, you get immediate, printable results with correlated recommendations, plus a downloadable manual. Designed by Victoria Kindle Hodson, M.A. and Mariaemma Pelullo-Willis, M.S., authors of the book, "Discover Your Child's Learning Styles", we encourage you to take the profile along with your children. It's a great way to discover how your learning style and your child's learning style may complement each other and how to adjust when they don't.  Ask your Educational Facilitator for a Learning Styles Profile account today! Then use the results to design lessons that draw on your child's strengths and talents. Research shows what homeschooling parents know intuitively, students are engaged when we draw on their talents. Thank you for sharing your journey with us!
