What is a charter school?

Charter schools are free, public schools.

According to the Texas Education Code, the purposes of charter schools are to:

  • improve student learning;
  • increase the choice of learning opportunities within the public school system;
  • create professional opportunities that will attract new teachers to the public school system;
  • establish a new form of accountability for public schools; and
  • encourage different and innovative learning methods.

Kauffman Leadership Academy provides a choice for the families of Johnson county with:

  • 15 students to every teacher
  • 75 minute class periods every day
  • 8 am to 5 pm school day
  • 200 instructional day school calendar
  • A cultural lunch hour every day with guest speakers
  • A chromebook for every student as their tool for learning
  • Community service monthly

Open Enrollment is closed; however, we are still accepting applications for 5th through 12th grade for the 2019-2020 school year.
