Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  With this new age of distance learning we are all ready and excited to get started with the new school year and engaging once again with our scholars.  This year, we aim to #EXCELForward as we move towards fulfilling our vision through leveraging our four pillars of College and Career Readiness, Character Development, Creative Arts, and Community Engagement.  As the year progresses, you will hear these terms more frequently as we tell you how our initiatives fit under the pillars.  At EXCEL Academy Public Charter School, we stand with PGCPS’ overall goals for this school year by: 

  • Providing a rigorous, standards-based, innovative distance learning model that is engaging and effective for our scholars;
  • Focusing on equity in our instructional and administrative practices;
  • Weaving social-emotional learning into the fabric of our instructional program; and 
  • Increasing our capacity for accurate data analysis for school improvement 

I am beyond excited and looking forward to partnering with every member of our school community to revolutionize the traditional education model.  I look forward to the opportunity and invite you all to join us on the journey!
