Although we are considered a public school, as a charter school we have the freedom to be more innovative in our instruction and educational techniques. Charter schools are accountable for improved student achievement. In addition, as an open enrollment public charter school there are no tuition fees. We are state accredited; offer career and technology training; online high school courses; including AP, dual credit with local colleges; fine arts; sports and much more.
Dr. Beck incorporated the following seven pillars or principles that we as an educational institute strive to instill in our students.
“The Seven Pillars of a Champion”
The seven stars above the eagle head of our brand represent these “Seven Pillars of a Champion.”
We believe Abraham Lincoln is the ultimate role model for our students. Abraham Lincoln represents the qualities that helped to establish our great nation. Our students are encouraged to emulate his leadership qualities, moral character and determination, as well as a strong work ethic and hope in their future. All of his qualities reinforce our principles and when followed complete our motto: “Building Champions with a Future and a Hope.”
