Mission Statement

Mission: Excel Academy Public Charter School will provide pre-school through eighth grade girls a solid academic foundation and enrichment opportunities to prepare them to succeed in high school and college and to develop the skills and confidence they need to make healthy, positive lifestyle choices. Excel Academy's founders believe that with strong support and training, all students can learn and achieve at high levels. Excel Academy will offer a unique single sex educational model in the elementary school years. Our selection of instructional materials, methods and school-wide structures have been informed by the best practices of successful schools across the nation. Based on an early educational intervention model that offers preschool for three-year-olds to promote school readiness, Excel Academy will implement a curriculum proven to build student achievement in reading, writing, math, and teach ethics, personal responsibility and healthy choices. We will use early and frequent assessments to gauge students' progress and identify academic needs per cohort and per individual student, and respond to the data such assessments provide with immediacy. We will hire highly qualified teachers and have ongoing professional development to create and maintain a community of respect and collaboration with our staff and parents. We embrace students' parents and guardians as essential partners in their student's education, and we will reach out to families and the wider community to support Excel Academy's girls.
