New Branches Charter Academy strives to provide a positive learning environment, along with a rigorous academic and cultural program where our children learn to become healthy, responsible citizens, life-long learners, and world leaders.



New Branches Charter Academy, in partnership with educators, students, families and community stakeholders, closes the achievement gap and transforms the human culture by developing problem solvers and life-long learners who are fully prepared for high school, college, global economy careers, and world change.

New Branches Charter Academy encourages and fosters:

  • Community We strive to create a safe environment that fosters inclusiveness and belonging by students, parents, staff, and community stakeholders.
  • Perseverance We always strive to push ourselves and our students to their fullest potential.
  • Responsibility Students, parents and staff are respectful to each other. Students learn to understand their responsibilities and take initiative to act upon them in their local, national and world communities.
  • Diversity We embrace and value working with families with rich cultural and diverse backgrounds. We recognize that immersion in a variety of cultures will prime our students to work and live in a global economy. We celebrate and honor all the perspectives and aspects of every culture and background that creates the fabric of our school culture.
  • Teamwork We provide a respectful process for open communication, collaboration and the opportunity for everyone to realize their value in our school community.
  • Communication We will practice healthy, open and candid dialogue between all members of our school community. Healthy dialogue is that which encourages necessary conversations and respects all parties.
  • Stewardship We ensure that our teaching and operational principles and practices are morally sound, ethical, transparent, respectful, and honest.


Our real masterpiece is the unleashing of human potential.  While our main focus is on creating the conditions of success for children to achieve their dreams, we also focus on developing one another through meaningful relationships, challenging work, constructive feedback, sound professional training, and a true commitment to nurturing the career path of each team member.
