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 provide a safe learning environment and 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.

"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

Southside won 2nd place Grade 5-6, and 4th place Grade K-4 at the K-12 chess tournament today held at Donlin ES in Liverpool. There were 75 players from all over CNY competing in the event. The other teams all had the maximum of 5 players, but we did it with only 3 players in each age group. Let's give a big round of applause to our team: Bear Kwasniewski, Shiloh Mantoch, Narah Mantock, Amir Taylor, and Ayden Williams. Shiloh was our MVP.
"The greatest benefit to be found lies not in the game of chess itself, but in the changed thinking that allows anyone to become a chess player—the realization that ability is dependent on motivated practice, not inborn talent. By pursuing chess as a pastime, you’re declaring lifelong learning to be part of who you are, no matter what square you’re starting from. And that choice, more than anything, makes any achievement possible." - Keith Ammann – in Metroland, January 16, 2013 (Photo: 2006 Southside Chess Champions)
