About Us

The Camden’s Charter School Network was founded to provide an educational opportunity for Camden’s youth in a city where violence and educational dropout are routine daily occurrences. Today, Camden has a population of 85,000 residents. Of these, 90 percent live in poverty, making Camden one of the poorest cities in the nation. Despite the normal struggles of an inner-city environment, students in Camden’s Charter School Network continue to flourish.

We are a community of learners. Our students are overcoming many obstacles to reach high levels of academic success. Every day, our students push themselves forward and challenge themselves with an engaging and enriching curriculum designed to prepare them for achievement. Our unparalleled education and standards help students to gain admission to the college of their choice and stay on the path to a prosperous and fulfilling life.

We aim to set high academic standards, stimulate the ambition to learn and maintain a positive educational environment. Serving as a living testament to our success, Camden Academy produces standardized test scores three times high than Camden City’s school district in language arts literacy and twice as high in math.

In addition, Camden Academy Charter High School was nationally recognized twice by U.S. News & World Report Best High School Rankings with a bronze medal in both 2010 and 2014.
