The Momentum Learning portfolio of schools provides a fully-accredited educational program for school-age youth who are either wards of the court or have been referred by social services, probation, or one of the 42 school districts in San Diego County. Services are provided to disadvantaged youth who have faced challenges either at school or in their personal lives and need a renewed path and additional support to reach their full potential and graduate from high school college and career ready. Momentum Learning serves nearly 10,000 students per year with four schools (Monarch School, San Pasqual Academy, SOAR Academy, and Community Schools) at 25 sites countywide.

Momentum Learning educators are committed to high expectations, social justice, and equality for all students. They value diversity and strive to eradicate institutionalized racism and discrimination in all forms. Their priority is to raise achievement of all students while eliminating the achievement gap between students of color and white students. They accomplish this through the delivery of culturally and linguistically responsive standards-driven instruction, courageous and advocacy-oriented leadership, and relevant professional development. All Momentum Learning community members stand personally committed and professionally accountable for the achievement of this mission.

The Momentum Learning Assessment Measurement and Accountability unit coordinates testing and analyzes data to support high student achievement.

Because Momentum Learning has been identified for Program Improvement (PI) under No Child Left Behind, the program has developed an LEA Plan in consultation with parents, school staff, and others.  

Momentum Learning has a Title I Parent Involvement policy that guides our work to engage parents and families as partners in their students learning.

Momentum Learning receives 2013–14 Economic Impact Aid Funding.

Some Momentum Learning students may be eligible for Supplemental Educational Services (SES), per NCLB requirements.
