    By unanimous vote of the ACA School Board, we are very pleased to announce that Achievement Charter Academy will add sixth grade classes to our school, effective in August 2023.  The addition of grade 6 is our first step in incorporating middle school into ACA. It will allow us to extend our learning model longer into our students’ academic lives and will make it possible for siblings and families to continue attending Achievement Charter Academy together for longer periods of time.

    We appreciate the support and encouragement of our ACA families as we take this important next step in the growth of Achievement Charter Academy!

    Achievement Charter Academy Mission

    Achievement Charter Academy’s mission is to foster individual achievement by teaching students to be self-directed learners and community contributors in a respectful, diverse, and inclusive learning environment.

    Here's What Sets ACA Apart From Other Schools . . .

    Our Innovative Educational Model

    ACA uses the Glasser Quality School (GQS) model as a guide to create a school culture that teaches and uses Choice Theory to support relationships based on trust and respect. The GQS model emphasizes Total Learning Competency and producing Quality Work to encourages self-directed learning and individual achievement. The model emphasizes the value of respect, diversity, inclusion, and community and promotes a school environment that is viewed by stakeholders as a joyful place.

    Our Curriculum

    The GQS model is an innovative learning approach that focuses on meeting the individual needs of students. The curriculum and method of delivery are fluid and flexible in order to maximize achievement of different learning styles and abilities in a diverse and inclusive environment.

    Choice Time

    ACA teachers incorporate student interests into the daily academic work. Choice Time activities, such as art, music, cooking, gardening, auto mechanics, and carpentry, are offered by teachers, parents, retired teachers, and community members.

    Multi-Age Classroom

    One significant difference between the educational model at ACA and traditional schools is the multi-age learning classrooms. Classrooms are composed of students who differ by one grade level, which creates a mix of ideas and abilities. Benefits include creating a strong student/teacher relationship, a personalized educational experience, peer mentoring/cooperative learning, and social emotional learning opportunities.

    Effective Learning & Individual Achievement At ACA

    Achievement Charter Academy is a special kind of charter public school that places a premium on trust, respect and innovative learning.  Learn more in this interview with ACA Principal Leaja Horne.
