Imagine if the families of Coeur d’Alene had the opportunity to send their children to one of the top schools in the nation! A school where the standards are high, where academics are the emphasis, and where a diploma is a ticket to college success. Imagine if there were such a place, and that it were free!

The Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy is that school. The Academy has been recognized annually by such publications as US News, Newsweek, and BusinessWeek for its outstanding programs and its students’ success. The secret formula is a school mission that emphasizes “rigorous, content-rich, college-preparatory education”; in other words, a return to the classical education model that made this country the world’s leader.

Since its founding in 1999, the Academy has provided the focused academic setting that allows serious students to thrive. And thrive they do!
As a result of their outstanding academic preparation, Academy graduates boast higher tests scores, gain admission to top universities, and receive impressive scholarship offers. When they arrive at college, they have an advantage over their peers, having already overcome significant academic challenges.

In terms of well-roundedness, Academy students enjoy the benefit of access to a wide variety of sports, clubs, and activities. Students who want to participate will find an activity to fit their tastes and abilities. Add to this the menu of high-quality arts programs—band, orchestra, drama, choir, and visual arts—and you have a setting that develops the whole student for lifelong learning and success.

No need to imagine a school that accomplishes all of this. That school exists right here, in our own home town. The Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy exists to serve North Idaho families who want the best college preparation available.
