Frequently Asked Questions

Charter schools are tuition-free, public schools that focus on an innovative teaching method or program of instruction. Charter schools are granted greater flexibility than traditional schools, in exchange for higher accountability.

Charter schools are schools of choice, meaning families choose the charter school for their child rather than attending a traditional public school based on location. While traditional public schools must adhere to specified regulations, charter schools can operate with less restriction from these regulations. Charter schools are accountable to achievement goals set in their charter and can be closed if they do not meet these measures.

Athlos is a school for all students. Strong academics are the foundation of a strong school, and at Athlos we believe higher student achievement is realized by bringing physical activity and Performance Character education to the forefront of our educational programs. We’ve redefined athletics as active, fit, and efficient movement. The Athlos athletic curriculum emphasizes teaching proper movement, has a strong foundation in current research, and is designed to prescribe age-appropriate movement activities to help students of all athletic abilities.
