About Our School

The Crispus Attucks Charter School has successfully aligned our curriculum with the Pennsylvania Student State Standards and benchmarks. We were recognized by YouthBuild USA, our national parent organization, for our outstanding program.

The students who enter our program have committed themselves to positive change. They recite our mission statement every morning, with its focus on accepting responsibility and respectable leadership.

The school’s aim is to help each student earn a high school education, develop employability skills, provide skills training and ultimately put them in a position to further their education and secure gainful employment. This is done by having a state certified curriculum, and a teaching staff that meets the requirements of the Pennsylvania Department of Education in order to receive a high school diploma. There is a Mental Toughness component that focuses primarily upon self-discipline and positive self-image.

Our constant endeavor to keep that mission alive and growing is established in the following areas and strengths:

  • Maintain a safe, encouraging, supportive learning environment.
  • Provide individualized pupil-centered education.
  • Teach students how to become effective, successful learners.
  • Motivate and educate students to realize and achieve their highest intellectual potential.
  • Instill the relevance of education for personal and professional success.
  • Help former high school dropouts earn a high school diploma by meeting YouthBuild competencies and PDE standards.
  • Encourage students to pursue post high school education in college, technical, business, or trade schools.
