Why Knapp Charter Academy?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, Knapp Charter Academy is a school like no other – one that can lead to a lifetime of success. Our exceptional teachers individualize instruction based on your child’s needs. In addition we focus on real-world skills and how to be a good person. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

I am very appreciative of the high parent involvement, and encouragement to do so. There are more parents and adults committed and invested in the students in this school than I have ever seen at any other schools. a major reason I chose this school was the emphasis on family involvement, moral guidance, importance of safety and their academic reputation. - Knapp Charter Academy Parent
