A new educational opportunity has presented itself to the Truxton community. With the strength this community has shown time and again, we can bring a school to our community that will bring our communty back into our school.
Charter schools are exciting because they are public, and therefore tuition-free, yet have more flexibility in how they operate. Charter schools have their own governing board of trustees that makes decisions for that one school, and not for an entire school district. This makes keeping what's best for that school the priority.
Truxton Academy Charter School would be the first Agri-based, Rural Charter School in New York. It is important to our community to share with our younger generations the true value of rural living and its place in our future.
- Project Based Learning with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math elements
- Governing board of trustees making decisions for our school only - not the whole district
