Sutter Peak Director, Heather Marshall

I can't believe Sutter Peak Charter Academy turns 5 this school year.  I am so proud to be a part of such a loving and thriving learning community.  I am humbled and honored to serve such an incredible staff of dedicated educators and colleagues who are eager to collaborate and work alongside of you on your homeschool journey.

We recognize the sacrifice and dedication families make when homeschooling which is why we strive to support parent choice and cultivate a personalized learning environment.  Sutter Peak is a Pacific Charter Institute school.  Pacific Charter Institute empowers students to take charge of their education by connecting their individual needs and interests to a rigorous learning plan, thus creating self-motivated responsible citizens, critical problem-solvers, and lifelong learners.
