Our Story

“Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.”

Langston Hughes, 1902 - 1967

Who We Are


Our Vision Statement
Alpha Academy’s vision is to be one of the most successful schools in the world. Success is measured by our service to the community while helping students graduate, obtain successful careers, and become model citizens of the world.

Our Mission Statement
Alpha Academy will prepare students to become outstanding leaders and motivates them to strive for their greatest potentials through exceptional character and academic achievements.

What is a Public Charter School?


Charter schools are unique public schools that are allowed the freedom to be more innovative while being held accountable for advancing student achievement. Because they are public schools, they are:

Open to all children; Do not charge tuition; and Do not have special entrance requirements.

Charter schools were created to help improve our nation’s public school system and offer parents another public school option to better meet their child’s specific needs. The core of the charter school model is the belief that public schools should be held accountable for student learning. In exchange for this accountability, school leaders should be given freedom to do whatever it takes to help students achieve and should share what works with the broader public school system so that all students benefit.
