We cultivate our scholars' growth using the four pillars of character development, college and career readiness, cultural arts, and community engagement. Serving approximately 412 students, EXCEL Academy strives to cultivate every student’s academic and social learning potential through a rigorous academic program, innovating instructional techniques, and partnerships with school and community stakeholder groups; provides a literacy and culturally rich environment; maintains small class sizes at all grade levels’ employs highly qualified and motivated teachers; and institutes student support systems comprised of staff and parents/guardians working cooperatively to create a safe and orderly environment.

The central role of a tutor is to deliver lessons and instruction to support students so that they understand concepts taught during the normal school day. Tutoring will be offered individually and in small group settings. Tutors should be familiar with the culture and dynamics of the community, committed to the goals of SEED, EXCEL Academy Public Charter School and Prince George’s County Public Schools.
