Its charter application has been submitted to the New Hampshire Department of Education to obtain State Board of Education approval to serve students in the Monadnock area.
“Affiliation of Monadnock Classical Academy with the Barney Charter School Initiative marks a huge step forward in our efforts to create the first classical public charter school in the Monadnock region,” declared Tanner. “Our sponsoring organization, the Monadnock Freedom to Learn Coalition, Inc., is delighted with this early recognition, which also brings substantial logistical support for the new school.”
Monadnock Classical Academy will provide area families with a broader range of tuition-free educational options for their school-age children. The new public charter school will offer students a school curriculum and experience grounded in the liberal arts and sciences. The goal is to develop well-rounded students who will be prepared to flourish in higher education and career environments.
“We invite families in the Monadnock region to consider Monadnock Classical Academy as a tuition-free opportunity for their children to receive a classical public charter school education,” said Tanner. “We envision our Academy as a complement to other educational opportunities and believe that parents are fully qualified to decide what school setting best meets their children’s educational needs.”
The Academy plans to open with six grades, from kindergarten through fifth grade, with a goal to extend its classical education curriculum through the twelfth grade over the next several years.
