Thank you for your interest in applying to establish a public charter school in Queen Anne’s County. Charter schools are public schools that operate under a charter, or contract, and are accountable to the Queen Anne’s County Board of Education.
The purpose of charter schools is to provide parents and students an alternative means within the existing public school system for additional innovative learning opportunities and creative educational approaches to improve the education of students.
A charter school must focus on and demonstrate positive student achievement, strive for high academic standards, and be accountable for measurable results, or lose its charter.
The application to open a public charter school in Queen Anne’s County includes a three step process: 1) Letter of Intent, 2) Concept Proposal, and 3) Final Application.
