ACCS Mission

Teacher instructing class lessonThe mission of Atlantic Community Charter School, in partnership with home and community, is to empower today’s learners to be tomorrow’s leaders. A core component of the school’s program is to assist students in developing the necessary academic, social, and emotional skill sets to prepare them for successful academic experiences in high school, post-secondary education, and beyond.

Students will be active participants in an educational environment characterized by high expectations for their academic achievement and demonstrated proficiency of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. Students will be members of a diverse student body, which includes English language learners and students with disabilities, in a program that challenges them to excel as:

  • Lifelong Learners
  • Independent Thinkers
  • Active Learners
  • Respectful Individuals
  • Responsible Citizens

Atlantic Community Charter School was founded on the high hope that an established charter school can create a learning environment that will deliver outstanding academic results by addressing student and family needs. Through ACCS’s organizational design, families will be encouraged to participate in a learning community that offers educational services for their students’ entire elementary and middle school experiences.

The greatest hallmark of the school will be its ability to replicate the highly successful models and practices that have achieved positive results in schools across the state and country.
