We help our students develop academic skills and a passion for lifelong learning so they will have a foundation to continue to learn, grow, and enhance their skills regardless of the vocation they choose. As industries change over time, graduates will have the ability to transfer their skills and knowledge to new opportunities.

Personalized Learning Plans

A+ Charter Schools works with every student to develop a Personalized Learning Plan (PLP) to guide their course selections and activities throughout middle school and high school. Based on their chosen career goal, students research and determine requirements for post-secondary education or training. We believe setting individual goals aligned with life after high school helps students see their future and gives more meaning to the educational process along the way.

Advisory Classes

We place all A+ students in an advisory class. They stay with the same advisor and a group of no more than 20 students for their entire tenure at A+ Charter Schools. Community and collaboration are built into the very structure of each student’s school day. We consider the socioemotional needs of our students as we implement the advisory classes and character curriculum, thus teaching the whole student to engage in learning and develop intrinsic motivation. Our talented and dedicated advisors serve as mentors and work with all students to reach their greatest potential.

Academic Success Groups

All students receive guided practice or enrichment through the academic success groups. Academic success groups meet the needs of students using intervention and provide enrichment for students at or above grade level to meet all of our students’ needs and goals.

Rigor and Honors Credit


We have high expectations for students and staff alike, and we challenge students through both academic instruction and peer learning to academically, emotionally, and socially better themselves.

Honors Credit

Students can differentiate their learning and earn honors credit in many of their content area classes. They may work on special projects or focus on deeper levels of critical thinking as aligned to their course and post-secondary goals. Empowering students to monitor their own academic growth and giving students ownership of their learning and developing critical thinking and project management skills are fundamental for workforce readiness.

We Are Stronger Together

We are stronger together! The Portrait of a Graduate is a framework, designed by the school in collaboration with community partners and stakeholders, to outline not only academic skills necessary for graduates but also 21st-century skills necessary for post-secondary success. The mission of A+ Charter Schools is to see all graduates apply these skills to their pathway after high school, whether enrolling in post-secondary education (vocational programs, community college, or a university), enlisting in a branch of the military, or entering employment.
