Why South Arbor Charter Academy?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, South Arbor Charter Academy 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.

"I feel the education that my children get here at South Arbor is exactly what they need in order to excel in high school and in college." - South Arbor Charter Academy 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 South Arbor Charter Academy

After a long talk with Finn regarding his placement in school this year, he asked me to write the following letter, and send it to all the teachers and principal of his school. These are his words verbatim. Dear Principal and Teachers of South Arbor Charter Academy, I think the tests are kind of silly, because they can’t tell you very much about the child that you’re testing. I think a better way to do it, would be to determine how well kids do their work every day. How hard we work should matter more than the tests. Some kids struggle, but they work hard. Kid’s hard work should be the most important. But I suppose it’s your choice. Finnegan Murphy, 2nd Grade.
The Back to School Carnival is so much fun! Thank you to all of our families for coming out to meet the teachers and play with friends.
