About Carolina Charter Academy

Carolina Charter Academy (CCA) began with a desire for expanding school choice in Wake, Johnston, and Harnett counties. This region is a fast-growing area, but there are very few options available to parents. The founders visited several charter schools throughout the state. After gleaning ideas from their visits and conducting extensive research, the founders wrote an application and submitted it to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. The application was approved in 2017 and the school opened it's doors in 2019. CCA will provide southern Wake, Johnston and Harnett county residents with a school that embraces a sense of community while offering a challenging curriculum and preparing students to be informed and involved citizens.
