About Empower Charter School

Empower Charter School is a student-centered and data-driven learning community within the Explore Schools network that focuses on the needs of individual learners. There are two teachers in every class, as well as a CTT class on each grade level to ensure that students receive the attention they need to thrive.  Our school culture communicates high academic and behavioral expectations for all learners. Parents, students, faculty, staff, and our Board of Trustees collaborate to provide an environment in which each learner is able to continuously improve.
