What is a Charter School?
Massachusetts Commonwealth Charter Schools are independently managed public schools that operate under a five-year charter granted by the Massachusetts Board of Education. Parents, teachers, non-profit organizations, community leaders, or others may start one of these schools. Charter schools have the freedom to organize around a core mission, curriculum, theme, or teaching method, and are allowed to control their own budgets and hire (and fire) teachers and staff. In return for this freedom, a charter school must demonstrate strong academic results within five years or their charter will not be renewed.
Salem Academy Charter School is a member of the Massachusetts Charter Public School Association (“MCPSA”). For more information about MCPSA, please click on this link: MassCharterSchool.Org
