Why Southside Academy Charter School?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, Southside Academy Charter School is a school like no other – one that can lead to a lifetime of success. We set high standards, focus on real-world skills, problem solving, and how to be a good citizen. Our exceptional teachers meet students at their ability level and challenge them to go beyond. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

"My children are both doing amazing! I love everything from the uniforms to what they’re being taught, including the moral focus." - Southside Academy Charter School Parent
Top Reasons Parents Send Their Children To Our School: *
1 School safety is a top priority.
2 Children receive individual attention and instruction.
3 The curriculum provides moral focus as well as academics.
* Based on actual 2013 surveys administered to parents of kids who were returning to Southside Academy Charter School

Sunday Message: Good evening Southside scholars and families. We had an excellent time on Saturday at our third annual Family Fun and Bowling day. Thank you all for being in attendance. Some of our great photos will be posted on our Facebook page. This week scholars in grades 3-8 will take part in our fall mock NYS test for ELA. Mock testing will begin on Tuesday. The Blackout is in full swing and we are off to a great start, BUT I know we can do better. As a school, we’ve read over 40,000 minutes on our way to our November 3rd goal of 400,000 minutes. Scholars, parents, families, and friends, keep reading, recording your minutes, and turning in those reading logs and reading leaves. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our extremely fun and prize-filled Blackout Reading Recital on November 6th. Families, I’m happy to announce that Southside has completed its application to join Section 3 of the NY high school athletic association. This will allow our 7th and 8th grade scholars to officially compete in competitive sports. Stay tuned for more information on how you can support this movement. Finally, be on the lookout for our October/November school newsletter this week. And as always, “like” our Facebook page at for up-to-date information and photos.
Located in the Southside community of Syracuse, NY, Southside Academy is a free public charter school serving over 680 scholars in grades K-8.
