The Mission

PODER Academy is a free public charter school with one mission: To prepare students for college and beyond, through rigorous academic and athletic programs. Students will master the core subjects in a high-intensity learning environment where tutoring is available to those who need an extra boost, and where English language learners get the support they need. 

The school adheres to a belief that the road to college begins in the early days of elementary, where students develop the work ethic and discipline needed to achieve academic success. High expectations are set from day one, and students as young as kindergarten age will learn how to maintain good study habits, manage their time, and recognize the appropriate time and place for certain behavior. 

The goal is to limit distractions so teachers and students can focus on what is important, and that is preparing for the road ahead.
