Welcome To Academy of the City Charter School

Opened in the fall of 2011, Academy of the City Charter School is a tuition-free, community-based public charter school in Woodside.

We have been named a Reward School by the NYS Education Department two years running for making the most progress with no significant gaps in student achievement. This award was given to only 185 out of over 4,400 schools in New York State. With our progressive educational model, the Academy’s goal is to motivate and prepare students to engage in a lifelong love affair with learning, resulting in a meaningful and productive life.  

We are firm believers in an integrated educational approach, where even our youngest students experience personal and educational growth as a result of a diverse student body that more closely mirrors the world outside the Academy’s doors. Here, English language learners, students with special needs, and high-performing students can feel equally at home.  Our rich and varied curriculum and our focus on the uniqueness of each child’s needs and aspirations is a proven model for long-term success.

The Academy of the City provides a groundbreaking opportunity for each child to embrace his or her own strengths and talents and to gain new perspectives and knowledge. Our mission is to not only offer learning for its own sake, but to serve as a conduit to the world, placing their lessons into practice and context.
