Campus Description: Midland Academy Charter School is a Texas public school. We are bound by the rules and regulations of an Independent School District. Our students are required to be taught the state curriculum or TEKS and they take the STAAR test. That is where our similarities end.

Midland Academy offers a firm foundation in literacy and numeracy. We hold that reading is a life-long skill essential for all other content. We use strategic instruction that is research based. We provide direct phonics instruction in grades PK-2. Students participate in focused reading groups where instruction is based on their independent reading level, not grade level. This methodology allows students to progress based on their ability and maturity.

Numeracy is the ability to perform mathematical calculation automatically. Our goal is for students to know addition, subtraction, multiplication and division calculations to automaticity. This allows students to concentrate on how to design an equation as the solution will be second nature.

Our school-wide discipline is firmly rooted in respect for one another. All staff is trained in Capturing Kids’ Hearts through the Flippen Group. We teach students to be self - managers. Children must learn to control themselves and work through problems with others in a respectful manner. Part of this process is founded in working collaboratively and cooperatively in groups.

We also have a focus on being philanthropic by giving back to the community in some way. Our students sponsor several projects throughout the year. Some examples are Hats Off which supports children with leukemia; Health Heart Challenge, Pasta for Pennies (Lymphoma and Leukemia Society), Heifer International, and the local Food Bank to name a few.

Our school is a family. Students are known individually. Students are greeted every morning with a handshake by a staff member and their teacher. We pride ourselves in providing a safe, orderly and nurturing environment.

We are a Pre-K through 8th grade campus. Even though we have 7th and 8th grade we do not offer sports. Our goal is academic success that leads to life success. Our mission is to L.E.A.D:
Love Learning, Excel in all we do, Achieve goals together, Do what is right
