About Us

Mission: Capital City enables a diverse group of students to meet high expectations; develop creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills; achieve deep understanding of complex subjects; and acquire a love of learning along with a strong sense of community and character. We will graduate young adults who are self-directed, intellectually engaged, and possess a commitment to personal and civic responsibility.

Approach: Capital City students complete a rigorous academic program that emphasizes both independent and collaborative learning within an inclusive democratic community. Many aspects of our school program can be directly linked to our success in closing the achievement gap, including our low student-teacher ratios, our approach to tailoring instruction to each individual learner, and our use of data to inform differentiated instruction. Our emphasis on social curriculum creates structures that build our students’ capacity to be strong, independent workers and thinkers. Project-based learning around compelling topics, combined with integrated arts instruction, results in increased student engagement. Capital City’s innovative approach to learning is a unique program based on nationally recognized educational models.

Student Body: Capital City serves 950 students in grades PK3 - 12 and graduated its first class of seniors in 2012. Students come from nearly every zip code in the city and represent a broad range of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Our Team: Capital City places a strong focus on professional development and strives to create a collegial atmosphere ideal for teacher learning and professional growth. Capital City seeks a teaching staff reflective of our student body and strongly encourages African American and Latino candidates to apply.
