For the Parents

There are many reasons families will to choose SR1 CPSA. Starting with SR1 belief in C.O.O.L.™ (Community Oriented Opportunities for Learning) -our trademark learning community learning approach.Then there’s our college preparatory, STEM-focused K−5 STEM infused curriculum, our award winning educational team, and student focused outcomes, and the nurturing outdoor school environment of our K-12 pipeline model. There’s our early global instruction, our celebration of learning, and our inclusive environment and respect for individual differences—just to name a few.

 

There are some myths out there about us, so we want you to hear directly from us why our founders started the SR1 CPSA Charter School, and why would you choose SR1 CPSA for your child.

Safety First

SR1 policies towards covid will change as CDC guidelines change. CDC guidance for K–12 schools changes because what they know about COVID-19 continues to change. This means SR1 CPSA guidance is updated as CDC learns more about what works best to reduce the risk of getting or spreading COVID-19.

Parents/Guardians Needed Support

SR1 CPSA supports the believe that Parents/guardians are the first teachers in their child’s life and know their child better than anyone else. Three strong leading Parents/Guardian actions: 1. Academic achievement increases when parents are involved in their children's education. The more intensively involved the parents/guardians are, the greater the positive impact on academic achievement. 2. Parental involvement leads to better classroom behavior.  Parental involvement not only enhances academic performance, but it also has a positive influence on student attitude and behavior. A parent's interest and encouragement in a child's education can affect the child's attitude toward school, classroom conduct, self-esteem, absenteeism, and motivation. 3. SR1 CPSA will encourage parental involvement in many ways. SR1 CPSA will seek significant parental/guardian involvement and will offer training programs to teach parents how to get involved in their children's education.

Uniform

SR1 CPSA strives to eliminate the self-consciousness and social competition which popular fashion trends tend to promote. Additionally, School uniforms are an important facet of our school culture and an integral part of our mission and purpose. A distinctive uniform will be a unifying factor within our school community and underscores the Academy’s seriousness of purpose by encouraging students to think of their attire as a connection to their goals.  In addition, neatness and modesty are important aspects of the Charter school environment.  The SR1 CPSA is a college preparatory school, and we want our students to distinguish themselves by their academic performance, their citizenship, their behavior, and their attitude and effort on a day-to-day basis. 

SR1 CPSA Diversity & Inclusive Campus

SR1 CPSA strives for a diversity and culture inclusive classroom. Diversity refers to the range of identities that exist in a group of people. Common identity categories referenced when discussing diversity include race, class, gender, religion and sexual orientation. Diversity in education represents a broad range of ideas and initiatives to create learning environments that are safe, inclusive and equitable for as many identities as possible. Recognizing, fostering and developing sensitivity to the needs of people in various identity categories are primary aims of educational diversity.

Researchers are still working to definitively prove the various links between nutrition and academics. Existing data suggests that with better nutrition students are better able to learn, students have fewer absences, and students’ behavior and focus improves, causing fewer disruptions in the classroom.

  • Improve Nutrition to Increase Brain Function

  • Provide a Balanced Diet for Better Behaviors and Learning Environments

  • Promote Diet Quality for Positive School Outcomes

SR1 CPSA will be a participate of USDA Farm to School programs and other nutritious programs.
