WV Academy Boasts 24% Enrollment Growth for Year 2
The priority deadline for enrolling next year at West Virginia Academy recently passed, which provides the first peek at the trajectory of the charter school's future. To the extent that success is measured by interest from continuing students and new applicants, West Virginia Academy is clearly succeeding. As of today, 375 students have enrolled for the next academic year, which represents a 24% increase year over year. More than 90% of the charter school's current students registered for next year and over a hundred new student applications have been processed so far.
"We're very pleased to see that the overwhelming majority of our students are returning next year and we are also excited to welcome so many new families," said John Treu, Board Chair of West Virginia Academy. "Charter schools are not for everyone as we have higher academic standards as well as a stricter code of conduct than traditional public schools, but for families that want their children to learn in a professional and safe environment, we provide a great option." Applications remain open to the free public charter school and admissions are on a first-come first-served basis while space remains available. With several months remaining before the start of school in the fall, the school projects its enrollments will exceed 400 students ranging from preschool to 10th grade. If all the spots in any particular grade level fill up, students are wait-listed in the order that they apply and then notified once space becomes available.
