Welcome to the Learning Post Academy!
Learning Post Academy is the Hart District’s independent study school. It was opened in 1980 – over 40 years ago. It is WASC accredited & NCAA approved just like other high schools in the Hart District. Dr. Pete Getz is the Principal of Learning Post Academy and Academy of the Canyons.
Learning Post Academy is located on the COC-Valencia campus in the University Center. The second option is Hart@Home and it is located on The campus of Castaic High School in Santa Clarita Valley, CA.
All Learning Post Academy students have the option of dual enrollment at their residence area school, as well as, dual enrollment at Castaic High School. Students are allowed to take one or two classes at their dual enrollment school. Class requests are arranged by the Learning Post Academy academic counselor and are based on space availability. If a student is participating in a CIF level sport at their residence area school, there is a requirement of taking two classes for dual enrollment – PE/sport and one additional class. CIF participants must meet all CIF/district requirements for participation.
Learning Post Academy offers a unique and personal graduation ceremony where the supervising teachers speak briefly about each of their students. Families rave time and time again about how much they appreciated the personal, up close ceremony for their Learning Post Academy graduate. If a Learning Post Academy student has dual enrollment during their final semester, they have the option of requesting to participate instead in their residence area school’s graduation ceremony.
The process for enrollment at Learning Post Academy begins with an application. A transcript must be included with the application unless the applicant is currently enrolled in one of the Hart District schools.
