The mission of City Charter High School …

a technology infused public school, is to graduate students who are academically, technologically, personally and socially prepared to succeed in post-secondary education, training, or employment.

Continuous challenge. A curriculum constructed with multiple levels best meets the academic needs of individual students.
Individual responsibility for learning. Academic success is dependent on students taking an active role in their learning. Personal academic connections. Success relies strongly on each student feeling connected to one or more adults at City High.
