Burton Glen Charter Academy Helps Students Reach Academic Excellence

Press Release

9/18/2014

BURTON, Mich., Sept. 12, 2014—Preparing students for college readiness is a task the staff at Burton Glen Charter Academy is dedicated to every day. Teachers and administrators use a variety of learning techniques to ensure each student is reaching their full potential.
 
Principal DeNesha Rawls-Smith knows the instructional hours within a school day are not always enough for each student and sometimes additional help is needed to fully grasp a concept.
 
“Not every child learns the same way and so our teachers are skilled at mixing up their techniques throughout the day so they have a better opportunity to really impact a student’s understanding of a new concept,” said Rawls-Smith
 
Burton Glen Charter Academy offers a variety of additional student resources to get them on the path to college readiness including after school tutoring and differentiated instruction. Every minute matters in the goal to achieve academic excellence.
 
“Academic excellence is evident in every aspect of our learning environment. I see it in the display of scholarship, citizenship, and stewardship in our students every day,” Rawls-Smith said.
 
This year’s theme for Burton Glen Charter Academy is magic, and the staff has embraced that message whole-heartedly. They dressed up as Disney characters on the first day of school to set the tone for the year. Now they are trying to share their vision for a magical school experience with students by providing them with a strong academic foundation to achieve the ultimate goal: a path to college readiness.
 
Burton Glen Charter Academy is a free public charter school serving students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
