The Mission of the Perseus House Charter School of Excellence is to provide a variety of educational opportunities to foster academic excellence through partnerships with family, community, and school.

The Charter School of Excellence provides non-traditional educational opportunities to foster academic excellence through partnerships with family, community and school.

The Charter School of Excellence offers small class sizes, cutting edge curriculum, a support system to address current barriers to learning and a grading system that does not permit students to fail.

We are now currently located at three different locations. Each with its own unique program and yet consistently providing quality education. No matter which program you choose our teachers and staff are there to guide you to a more successful future.
