Mission Spotlight

It is the mission of Arcadia Charter School to prepare our students to transition intellectually, emotionally, and ethically to higher education, future employment, and engaged citizenship.

Arcadia Charter School envisions a supportive learning community that, through collaboration and student-driven, project-based learning, encourages and assists students to:

  • Express themselves creatively through the visual, literary, and performing arts.

  • Use technology with innovation, imagination, and responsibility.

  • Develop critical thinking and creative problem solving skills.

  • Construct knowledge and meaning for themselves.

  • Value, advocate, and strive for the wellness of the whole person.

  • Be empowered to act as local citizens within a rapidly changing global community.

We have exciting events happening at Arcadia this week! Each of these events demonstrates the high level of engagement and academic work required of Arcadia students. They also showcase our emphasis on creativity, collaboration, and citizenship. 

Friday of this week is the end of the 2nd quarter. On that day, from 12:30-2:30pm, we will be hosting our first Presentation Afternoon of the year, at which all students will present their projects from this quarter, and engage with their peers’ work as audience members, during the school day. You are warmly invited to attend! All are welcome!

Later Friday night, at 7:00pm, we celebrate the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with Arts for Martin. This community-wide event celebrates the legacy of Dr. King with visual art, dance, spoken word, and song. Come join us at this powerful event!  


A message from the Middle School Advisors:

Parents, please send more kleenex with your child to share and pencils and index cards if your child is out.
