I am Michele Kelsay, Campus Director of the Cedar Park Mustangs! I have been in education for 30 years and I have 20 years of experience as a school principal. I have never been more excited to educate children than I am with this program. Let me tell you about our school. We have Pre-K through 12th grade under one roof. This creates a family atmosphere that is valued by so many. We have small classrooms and student to teacher ratios. There are plenty of opportunities for parent involvement!
Our elementary is using Getting Along Together to help us build the skills necessary to be leaders, problem solvers, in our community. Our high school is a school within a school. Through the P-TECH grant, students are able to graduate high school and graduate college with an associate’s degree. They also earn industry certifications to allow them to step into jobs upon graduating from high school.
One of the great advantages that come with starting a new school is the opportunity to hire a gifted group of inspirational and highly qualified educators. Cedar Park Charter Academy teachers are masters of their disciplines, yet not afraid to innovate as they educate or to use creative strategies that engage students and motivate them to excel. They are passionate about teaching and continue to seek opportunities to expand their own knowledge and experience. They set the bar high for their students, teaching the essential skills to be successful academically, but are also sensitive to different learning styles inherent in their students. And, perhaps most important, they have that special knack for connecting with students one-on-one.
If small class sizes, academic excellence, critical-thinking skills and a broad range of opportunities will help your child flourish, contact us for more information.
