Equitas Academy Charter School
Equitas Academy Charter School was founded in 2009. We are a network of free public schools for families who believe their children deserve a high-quality education and challenging school experience. Our school model offers credentialed, passionate, and dedicated teachers and staff who are experts in their field. We currently serve over 1,000 students in Kinder-8th grade in two Elementary Schools and one Middle School and will open up our second Middle School in August 2017. Equitas Academy is based in the Pico-Union neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. We value:
- High Expectations. Structured and disciplined classrooms, school-wide behavioral code of conduct, and school uniforms
- College Readiness. Extended school day and year, enrichment activities, and preparation to enter top-performing middle, high schools, and, ultimately, college
- A Family Partnership. Ongoing communication with parents about academic and behavioral progress, at-home visits by staff, and family workshops
- A Safe & Supportive School Community. We help our children make positive choices through our school values of curiosity, optimism, gratitude, grit, self-control, social intelligence, and zest.
Our Mission & Success
Our mission is to provide a structured, achievement-based community that prepares scholars to graduate from college-preparatory high schools, four-year colleges, and universities. Our school has been recognized as a California Distinguished School and Gold Ribbon School by the California Department of Education.
