STEM Solutions Take Education to a New Level at Ki Charter

Ki Charter is redefining education for a special population of students. Using Pitsco Education’s science and math modules for middle and high school and STEM missions for elementary as a fully-immersed supplement to core courses, students become active, engaged members of the classroom. Read Pitsco article about our programming in the August 2016 issue of Pitsco Network.

Community Partnerships

Community partnerships are part of what make Ki Charter Academy such an innovative and successful educator. We’re always thrilled to welcome a new partnership to our community. Recently, Southside Community Center, a non-profit organization that provides food and shelter for the homeless, joined our team. Through this partnership, our students study for and earn their food handler certification by preparing meals for Southside Community Center patrons. Our students feed over 50 people a day, Monday through Thursday!
