Equitas Academy believes students must have access to an achievement-oriented learning environment, beginning in kindergarten through high school, to ensure all students make a smooth transition to the demands of college preparatory high schools with the ultimate goal of college graduation.
We created a school with a college preparatory focus in the elementary grades, so students develop the foundational skills necessary for entrance into high-performing secondary schools.
Our school has an educational program that enables students, despite obstacles, to learn to read, write, and compute at or above grade level.
We have a strong character education component that will serve our students through the many life challenges they may face in accessing higher education.
Our school enriches the lives of students and their families. We help our families support their children on their journey to college.
At Equitas Academy, we are committed to character education and work to teach and instill the most important values for future success in our scholars. The Equitas Academy Values are defined by Paul Tough in the book How Children Succeed.
