Compass Rose Academy
Compass Rose is a brand new public charter school. We are deeply committed to helping all students live up to their power and potential through a rigorous high-tech, college-preparatory education. The Compass Rose model takes the best practices of high-performing charter schools nationwide and layers onto that strong base an innovative, personalized curriculum for each student. The result is a school that is uniquely suited to educate students in low-income areas of San Antonio. We were authorized by the Texas Education Agency in the spring of 2016 and will welcome our founding class of Fifth and Sixth Graders in August 2017. Our approach to building a great school is based on three foundational beliefs: 1) Every child, no matter their race, socio-economic status, zip code, or home language, can be on a path to college and a lifetime of success; 2) Students thrive in a personalized, structured, and supportive environment; and 3) Teaching technology literacy, leadership skills, cultural competence, and self-advocacy are critical components to building our country’s future leaders.
