Academy Charter School is a Kindergarten through 8th grade charter school. We are a publicly funded school founded by a parent group in 1993. The building we are currently in was first opened for students in 2001. Our school offers unique educational opportunities through our Core Knowledge Curriculum, our Core Virtues, and rigorous academics. Our parent community is highly involved in the education of our students and are required to volunteer in the school 20 hours per year. We offer Spanish for K-8th grade along with technology, art, music, and PE. Please browse our website for more valuable information or contact us directly.

Thank you for your interest in our school!
