Will Carleton Academy provides all children with the opportunities and resources to achieve academic success.

A charter school, by definition, is a school of choice. Because of this, parents play an important role in every part of their child’s education. Our small size allows more one-on-one attention and the ability to tailor our curriculum to meet each child’s educational needs. Our faculty and staff are committed to nurturing the whole child, fostering the safe and respectful environment where learning can best occur.

What Others Are Saying

My son is in the preschool program and I can’t say enough about the staff and school they are so friendly and made us feel at ease with the transition into school. I was so afraid of him coming home crying saying he never wanted to go back but his teacher is the absolute best so caring and nurturing and I couldn’t have hand selected a better teacher for the job! This school is wonderful. I have no worries while he’s there.
