"You lead me through the field of my own knowledge, and then by pointing out analogies to what I know, persuade me that I really know some things which hitherto, as I believed, I had no knowledge of."
-Socrates, Oeconomicus XIX.15
What is a Charter School?
Charter schools are public schools that operate with an agreement (or charter) with a state, school district or governmental entity to provide an enhanced education that is often unavailable within the conventional public schooling setting. These schools are open to all students, do not charge tuition, and have no religious affiliation. Charter schools must abide by the same state and federal testing, financial, anti-discrimination, health and safety regulations as all public schools. They typically have higher levels of parent, student, and community involvement and often realize higher student achievement.
Our campus is small by design, which gives it a private school atmosphere where parents, faculty, and staff can work together for the benefit of each child. Though it may seem like a small private school, it is an established, tuition-free public school of choice.
