Our Mission:

CAN Academy was created to help meet the educational needs of those students who may not be experiencing success at the traditional school. CAN's target population consists of students whose life, behavioral and/or emotional circumstances could result or have resulted in an interruption of their education placing them at-risk of multiple school retention or dropping out of school.  CAN Academy also serve students who parents believe an online  curriculum, integrated with traditional and individualized classroom instruction, facilitated in a small setting may be a "good fit" for them.  

In order to be successful, our ongoing goal is to partner with parents, students and various community stakeholders to meet the needs of those we serve.

Our Vision...

"Students motivated to learn, value education, self-respect, responsible, and committed to cultivating abilities to fulfill individual purpose to become productive adults."

Philosophy ...



CAN Academy admits students of any race, color or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and financial aid programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.  

Our goal is to improve the graduation percentage rate of students in Chatham County, reduce school retention by identifying the various ways our students learn, by being individualized, eclectic and innovative in our approach, by being persistent and consistent, by being deliberate and proactive in our communication with parents, by motivating and never giving up on our students to ability learn, thrive, stay in school, and respect self, peers, rules/expectations and authority.

We utilize a computer-based curriculum which allow students to remediate and accelerate their learning.  Also, we integrate traditional teaching for students needing more individualized help in certain subjects.  In doing so, students start to see getting promoted and graduating from high school as a reality versus dropping out of school, thus placing them in a position to become a productive self-sustaining adult by going on to technical school, college/university or the armed forces.
