Tuition-Free, High Quality, Public Education

Not all public schools are the same. And not all students are the same. At Cherokee Charter Academy, we meet the students where they are. We have smaller class sizes and more one on one time with teachers. We prepare students for life, not just how to pass through but how to succeed.
