Facing Movements 10/30/2022

Families and supporters,

We are disappointed that the state denied 13 out of 16 applications. We are not dissuaded and are already making adjustments to resubmit and continue to move forward. Many highly successful charter schools have had taken two rounds for approval. In fact, KIPP Nashville, likely the premier charter school in the state of Tennessee took two rounds. We move ahead!! We should add, we have added many great supporters during Round 1. It will make for a stronger Round 2!

In the mean time, we are working within the community to form a Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Squadron. For ages 12 and up, if you'd like to learn more please let us know. For our early entry cadets, start practicing Drill & Ceremony!

Can we Afford to Ignore the Science of Reading? | Melissa Hostetter | TEDxUofISpringfield 09/18/2022

Parents and supporters, please take 10-miutes and watch this TedX. And be comforted to know that we will focus on this very subject as a supplement to our Core Knowledge curriculum. Phonics is a skill, not a curriculum. And phonics, as well basic math facts, will also be reinforced by our Military Instructors! Meaning, not only will our Military Instructors teach Drill & Ceremony, Military tactics and history, and of course leadership, they will also reinforce critical learning skills: Phonics and Math Facts.
