Chester Community Charter School is dedicated to empowering students as learners through the development of a results-driven academic environment, which includes a partnership with parents, a focus on building life skills, and the desire for knowledge. It is our mission to assist students in developing the necessary academic, social, and emotional skill sets to prepare them for successful academic experiences in high school, post-secondary education, and beyond.
Our approach teaches students how to ask probing questions and to find answers, rather than memorizing and repeating facts.
By the time our students graduate from 8th grade, they will have a solid foundation to be self-sufficient learners for the rest of their lives. They will have the ability to communicate confidently and well in the electronic world, at large, and will be proficient in reading, mathematics, and language, as defined by state standards.
Our desire to empower children as learners is driven by a philosophy that proposes:
- Active learning
- Attention to individual learning styles
- Learning that integrates the senses, and
- Learning that is student-centered and, eventually, student-driven
The mission of our school’s technology plan is to ready our students for the 21st century work world and to keep them on the forefront of today’s most advanced operating systems, by providing pupils with state-of-the-art, technology-based instruction and access to electronic and web-based information.
