There is perhaps no better way to learn about possible solutions to the challenges we each face in our work that to hear about how others facing similar challenges worked through them.

In this space, we will work to celebrate the accomplishment of great rural charter schools and explore how they worked towards the challenges they faced, with a focus on strategies that may be transferrable to other contexts. And if you have a success story that deserves to be celebrated, please feel free to share it with us at: info@ruralcharters.org!

Henderson Collegiate Academy (Henderson, NC)

Since its launch in 2010, Henderson Collegiate Academy has grown from a small group of dedicated teachers and about 40 fourth graders learning in several portable classrooms to over 750 students across grades K-12 in a rapidly expanding campus. Located in the heart of Henderson, NC, a little over an hour north of the state capital, Raleigh, the team at HCA has grown their school into not just a high performing school, but one of the highest performing Title 1 schools, and has an amazing story to tell.
