Frequently Asked Questions
(click a question below to get the facts)

A charter school is a public school that is operating under the terms of a “charter” or contract. In Georgia, a startup or locally approved charter school such as LOA has a charter that is approved by three parties - the GA State Board of Education, the local school district, and the board of the charter petitioner or applicant. A charter school is an independent public school that operates autonomously from the district board of education. It is typically under the direction of a CEO or dean that oversees all grades.
LOA is a locally-approved charter school. In 2007, the charter was approved by the Greene County Board of Education, the Georgia State Board of Education, and the LOA Board of Governors. In March of 2016, the LOA charter contract was renewed for eight more years.
