The Chatham Charter Difference

As a K-12 school, Chatham Charter is able to impact students from kindergarten through high school graduation. School staff continually looks for ways to make connections within the K-12 setting. Teachers across all grade levels collaborate in working to maintain a curriculum that spirals upward with strong connectedness to ensure students progress seamlessly through the grade levels.

An ongoing area of focus for Chatham Charter is college preparedness. It begins in elementary school, teaching solid skills for success that lead to young people who will flourish after high school graduation. The middle school continues building on this foundation, equipping students to succeed in a rigorous high school environment. High school students complete the majority of state graduation requirements in their first two years and are able to begin taking college courses as juniors.

By the end of the senior year, Chatham Charter twelfth graders earn an average of 35 college-level credits, resulting in enormous savings for families and giving them great flexibility for future plans. Ninety percent of graduates have plans to attend a two- or four-year college/university directly upon graduation. Those who do not go into the workforce or military.
