johnsonDear Students and Parents,

      On behalf of the Faculty and Staff of Charleston Development Academy Public Charter School, I would like to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. Charleston Development Academy is a high performing school with
dedicated and passionate faculty, supportive parents and creative, energetic students. We are a school that is developing students holisticallyarming them with the necessary 21st century skills to be global citizens.
     We truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of CDA. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community. All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals. 
     I anticipate a most successful year as my team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Charleston Development Academy Public Charter School. Please don't hesitate to call or contact the school if you ever have any questions or concerns. It is always our goal to be available to you! Visit us on facebook by clicking the facebook icobelow.
