A Word

From Our Director

Almond Acres Charter Academy is designed and dedicated to the true meaning of education. The word “educate” originates from the Latin word “educare“ which means to nurture and draw out the learner, not to fill him/her up.  We help students become the very best version of themselves by inciting a passion and desire to learn. Project-based learning, service learning, and meaningful educational experiences within our community are the keys to unlocking outstanding learning and student success.
