Dear High Point Academy Family,
As we come to the end of our third year of operation as a school, we have had many successes and celebrations of which we can be proud. As a public charter school and charter school district, we are strong both academically and financially. We are growing into the future by hiring exceptional leaders and teachers, adding another campus which will allow High Point Academy to impact the lives of many more students, families and staff, and remaining true to the original vision, which is “Changing lives through high quality educational experiences and a strong foundation of academic excellence.” All of these wonderful things have come about as a result of the hard work and perseverance of the High Point family, as well as the culture and difference that we are making in the lives of our students, families and staff family.
As High Point grows and in preparation for the start of our fourth year, I have exciting news to share that will differentiate our high school program from the elementary and middle school program. This strategically planned step will strengthen and promote the identity of the high school and provide the same level of support for our high school grades that our elementary and middle school grades have enjoyed over our first three years of operation.
I am happy to announce that I have hired a High School Principal who has extensive charter school experience and success, which I believe will propel our high school program along the path to becoming an example of high academic performance and rigor among schools. Mr. Craig Shreckengast will join our family over the summer in preparation for the 2018-19 school year. He comes to us with a proven track record of success, a strong moral compass and a heart for the students. His leadership will compliment Mr. Lott’s and I wholeheartedly believe that together they will make certain that all of our students and staff have exactly what they need to be successful.
This is an incredibly thrilling time for High Point! Thank you for entrusting us with the education of your children. We are proud to impact their lives and consider it a privilege to help shape their future.
