2019-2020 School Year
Since 1930, Lena Pope has been working with children and families to help create hope, happiness, and success. We believe that each child can achieve great things when they are encouraged to learn in ways that work for them. Chapel Hill Academy Charter School opens the door to this success and inspires hope for the future! Chapel Hill Academy is an Open-Enrollment Public Charter School and does not charge tuition. We are looking forward to our 12th year with the 2019-2020 school year, serving grades Pre-K through 7th.
