About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See The Classical Academy Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

The Classical Academy Charter School Reviews
EXCELLENT!!,,,My Grandchild learned more in kindergarten the first THREE MONTHS of kindergarten at Classical than my other grandchild learned in pre-k and first grade at another local school. Patriotism and respect for our country is also very evident. I am so appreciative of the job these teachers are doing because they LOVE TO TEACH. I don't have much money to spend by I'm going to donate what I can, and also work to inspire more donations to this wonderful school.
No school is perfect. However, TCA provides a solid foundation and focuses on the classical education which gives the students a "leg up" on their peers once they enter college. I went to a college that is considered fairly rigorous academically, and I was more challenged in high school than I was in college. The teachers genuinely care about students and focus on their success, not just test scores and quotas. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else and be satisfied.
Love the teachers at these schools. The class sizes are smaller that typical. My kids are getting a private school education for a great price - my participation. Parents and teachers make this a great program.
