CURRICULUM FOCUS

 

Charlotte Choice Charter School sets an atmosphere for rigorous and innovative learning for ALL of our SCHOLARS. We are committed to EXCELLENCE and making a DIFFERENCE- One child at a time.

 

Our authentic curriculum focus, throughout our K-8 program, specifically addresses the needs of our scholars as they matriculate through our institution of learning. Our Instructional Facilitators are equipped with the necessary tools to ensure that learning is occurring throughout all grade spans. As the North Carolina Common Core State Standards as our road map, we are able to manipulate and extrapolate the curriculum to meet the needs of our scholars- physically, emotionally, socially and academically- thus promoting a sense of self-worth and responsible citizenship.
