Welcome to Wayne Preparatory Academy
We are excited to open our first 2014-2015 school year at Wayne Preparatory Academy with a dedicated faculty, devoted Board of Directors, and enthusiastic families.
To create a legacy of leadership and learning that embraces, enriches, and engages children’s strengths, one child at a time.
Wayne Preparatory Academy is driven to achieve a vibrant learning community that goes beyond event and test driven learning. Our academic community of board, faculty, staff, scholars, and parents will serve as committed stakeholders in providing opportunities for excellence in leadership, academics, and scholarship.
What is a Charter School?
Charter schools are tuition-free public schools of choice, but each charter school is governed independently by 501c3 non-profit organizations. They are typically funded at 80% of what traditional public schools receive. Many charter schools function very efficiently on a “less is more” philosophy. Charter schools typically focus on their own mix of proven academic strategies that best reach their student base. Charter schools also have their own mix of academic philosophies of what students they can serve best via academic remediation, high intellect, Socratic, Basic School, college preparation and STEM approaches to name just a few academic approaches within existing North Carolina charter schools. Unlike traditional public schools, every charter school must demonstrate success, or it will lose its charter.
