Chester Upland Academy operates as a specialized model designed to offer two separate programs at one school location in partnership with the Chester Upland School District.
Chester Upland Excel Academy is an accelerated program for students in grades 9 through 12 who have been identified by the school district as being over-age and under-credited. This program allows students the opportunity to graduate in 2.5 years or sooner and offers a smaller, more personal setting, intensely focused on elevating social skills, emotional wellness, and academic success.
Chester Upland Achieve Academy is a transitional program for students that were unsuccessful in the traditional school setting in grades 7 through 12 who have been removed from their sending school for serious behavior infractions. The goal of our program is for students to return to their home campus in a timely manner demonstrating marked improvement in behavior, attendance, and academics.
