Welcome to Charleston Development Academy
Rated "A" by the South Carolina Department of Education ESEA
Elementary and Middle School Levels

1Welcome to Charleston Development Academy Public Charter School 2012-2013 Academic School Year! This year we will celebrate our 10th year in operation. On behalf of the faculty and staff of CDA I wish to personally thank you for making our institution your school of choice. It is indeed an excellent choice you have made for your child’s academic learning experience. CDA strives to be a positive learning environment, “where excellence is a standard expectation and where standards are expected to be excellent.”

Once again, our PASS scores are in and the result validates that we are making positive gains toward helping to close the achievement gap. We are ranked as a grade “A” school in accordance to the new ESEA Flexibility waiver. Hats off to our students and teachers – lots of thanks to our parents, for their belief in our school’s ability to significantly achieve and sustain our academic gains.

Parents we need your cooperative help this year more than ever. We are simply asking that you each commit to volunteering at least ten (10) hours this academic year. Your participation with a school/parent activity of your choice will make a significant difference on our achievement data. Parents are also required to purchase a bag of CDA coffee ($10.00) per year to help defray the cost for the school’s cultural affair activities.

Again, thanks for your trust and confidence in Charleston Development Academy Public Charter School for your child’s academic achievement and social development. Visit us on facebook by clicking the facebook icon below.

Executive School Director
