“Juan Bautista de Anza is a student-centered program designed to help maximize every student’s academic potential,” said Dr. Sandra Thorpe, executive director. “All JBDA students take a Learning Style Inventory that helps our teachers customize instruction using learning preferences to maximize academic achievement. Students complete their schoolwork at their own pace with one-on-one assistance and support available online and at our centrally located learning center in Salton City. In addition to our standards-based curriculum, we offer a wide array of enrichment opportunities including our Horse Wisdom leadership program.”
