WHO WE ARE
Charleston Acceleration Academy (CAA), a tuition-free public charter school, is an innovative education leader that is partnered with the South Carolina Public Charter School District, helping young adults overcome real-life challenges to earn their South Carolina state-issued high school diploma.
Our learning environment provides exactly what research shows students need to be successful: engaging courses, technologically advanced educational tools, personalized curriculum, and regular interaction with caring adults. Beyond academic and post-secondary supports, Acceleration Academies, offers the tools needed to help students overcome personal barriers to attendance and engagement.
Our strong partnership with Trident Technical College will provide our students with college and career opportunities, dual enrollment courses and apprenticeships accessible to every CAA student as they embark on their bright futures.
The mission of Charleston Acceleration Academy is to provide a comprehensive education to at-risk students which leads to students' attainment of a diploma, acceptance to college or pursuit of a career, and culminates in each student having a positive impact in their community.
