Please click on the Interest Form button below if you would like your child to attend Vibrant Minds Charter School (VMCS) in the 2020-2021 school year or in the future. This is the new name for GOALS Academy, and VMCS is the same great strength-based small school with the same amazing scholars, engaged parents, and dedicated staff. Only our name has changed. Please understand acceptance into VMCS is contingent upon space availability, and drawings were held to ensure fairness in the selection process. Because the drawings have already been taken place, all Interest Forms will result in a position on the waiting list. You will be contacted if a space becomes available. Thank you for you interest in our school!

Screening of Scholars on Campus
As GOALS continues to provide supervised support on campus at our Vibrant Minds Distance Learning Center, we want to clearly communicate when scholars should remain at home or will be sent home. Each morning, the following screening needs to take place. If any of the questions are answered in the affirmative, then the child needs to remain home. Keeping our VM Distance Learning Center open will take a community effort. This same effort will be needed when we reopen our school for instruction.
- Temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth
- Sore throat
- New uncontrolled cough that causes difficult breathing (for scholars with chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline)
- Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
- New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever
- Had close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with a person with confirmed COVID-19
The following charts in English and Spanish developed by the Orange County Health Care Agency will guide us as we respond to illnesses among our scholars.

FEATURED PROJECTS AND PERFORMANCES
Our group of sixth graders were the only elementary school in attendance at the Anaheim Union High School District's Solo/Ensemble Festival. The adjudicator rated them with a superior. We are proud of our scholars and grateful to the siblings, parents, and relatives who attended. We also had an opportunity to reconnect with a number of our graduates who were performing at this event.
This video was part of our Back-to-School Night event prior to the classroom presentations. Enjoy!
