Our Mission

Through a classical curriculum, high quality instruction, and leadership development, Élan Academy Charter School ensures that all students have the foundation necessary to thrive in secondary school, succeed in college, and access a life of opportunity.

Our Model

We maximize individualization and propel early technology literacy through rich and frequent blended learning. We stand firm on three concepts - grammar, logic, rhetoric - and three components – structured learning, Great Books, spoken language. Our 21st century approach to learning, joined with a classical curriculum, provides an innovative and powerful option for preparing students with the foundation necessary for lives of opportunity.
