At Charles C. Ball Academy, we are a neighborhood school that believes that all students deserve a well-rounded education grounded in a student-centered approach. As an in-district charter, we provide STEAM and blended learning. Students are provided with project-based learning curriculum and a wide range of technology resources that increase rigor and relevance and provide students with the 21st-century skills that they need to be successful in the careers of the future. The combination of a challenging instructional program and exceptional extracurricular programs cultivates a learning environment where students succeed both academically and socially.
