Polaris Charter Academy
Children thrive at Polaris Charter Academy, (PCA) the only public elementary Expeditionary Learning school in Illinois. At PCA, children know how to identify who has the expertise they need, how to learn from experts and how to become experts themselves. Polaris is about exploration, discovery, and learning by doing. PCA also is committed to helping students become academically successful life long learners with a strong sense of personal and civic responsibility. Through experiential learning, fully integrated and infused literacy, and real world investigation, PCA seeks to create the next generation of active and engaged citizens.
