Building Youth through Education

Crispus Attucks Charter School

The Crispus Attucks Charter School is designed to give youth the opportunity to earn their high school diploma. Along with academic classes, seniors must participate in Service Site construction training every other week. Students are also required to participate in Mental Toughness.
— Jacquie Martino-Miller, Crispus Attucks Charter School CEO


The mission of the Crispus Attucks Charter School is to prepare students to become mentally tough, by accepting responsibility for themselves. We develop self-esteem, self-respect, and respect for others while promoting academics, leadership and career skills; therefore, students become productive and respectable citizens in the community.

About Our School

The Crispus Attucks Charter School has successfully aligned its 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.

Applications for enrollment to grade 12 of the Crispus Attucks Charter School are available daily. Please see Ms. Feliciano in the administrative office at 605 South Duke Street for an application.

Youth and young adults of York County! Are you planning for your future?

Youth receiving assistance

Not sure where to start? Looking for a job? Want to get back into school or continue your education after high school? The Crispus Attucks Center for Employment & Training has a variety of programs for in-school and out-of-school youth between 14-18 years of age and young adults from 19-24 years of age. These programs are designed to prepare youth for jobs, help them with their education, obtain certifications, and improve their life and basic computer skills along with other necessary skills and training. Participants must meet state mandated financial eligibility (Workforce Investment Act (WIA) and Temporary Assistance for Needy families (TANF) guidelines.) This is an opportunity to both “learn and earn,” and programs are offered during daytime and after school hours. If you, your child, organization, or individuals you serve are interested in finding out more about our programs, please contact: Shana Scott, Case Manager at 717-848-3610 ext. 303 or sscott@crispusattucks.org.
