About Us
 
Equitas Academy Charter Schools are free public schools for families who believe their children deserve a high-quality education and challenging school experience. Our school model offers credentialed, passionate, and dedicated teachers and staff who are experts in their field. We value:
 
  • High Expectations. Structured and disciplined classrooms, school-wide behavioral code of conduct, and school uniforms
  • College Readiness. Extended school day and year, enrichment activities, and preparation to enter top-performing middle, high schools, and, ultimately, college
  • A Family Partnership. Ongoing communication with parents about academic and behavioral progress, at-home visits by staff, and family workshops
  • A Safe & Supportive School Community. We help our children make positive choices through our school values of curiosity, optimism, gratitude, grit, self-control, social intelligence, and zest.
