Imagine a public school where science and math are taught through project-based learning. Imagine a school where hands-on learning in a Rural Life Lab happens everyday, where Spanish language classes start in kindergarten, and where fresh, whole food lunches are served daily! Welcome to Truxton Academy. The new tuition-free public charter school welcomes students from Cortland, Madison, Onondaga, Tompkins, and surrounding counties. We are now accepting applications for children entering grades K thru 2 this Fall 2019. Reserve your children's spot today!
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 will be the first rural Charter School in New York State. It is important to our community to share with our younger generations the true value of rural living and its place in our future.
Truxton Academy gives a warm welcome to students starting school for the first time, students from other public schools, and students from private schools, parochial schools, and homeschools
"The reasons that parents choose charter schools for their children are just as unique as the students themselves. They choose charter schools because of the strong, dedicated teachers, because the school's focus matches their child’s needs, or simply because their child was struggling in their assigned public school and needed to try something new. Charter schools provide families with options in public education, allowing parents to take a more active role in their child’s education".
