Blackstone Academy and The Compass School Receive 5-year Renewals! (Dec 6, 2016)

The Rhode Island League of Charter Schools is thrilled to congratulate Blackstone Academy Charter School and The Compass School on the Rhode Island Council on Elementary and Secondary Education’s approval of unconditional five-year renewals for both schools!

These unconditional renewals for the maximum 5-year period permitted under Rhode Island’s charter school law should come as no surprise.  Both Blackstone Academy and Compass have proven track records of outstanding academic success.  The Rhode Island Department of Education has recognized Blackstone as a “commended” school in three of the past five years, and Compass is one of only ten schools statewide to earn “commended” status in each of the last two years.

Blackstone Academy is a high school located in Pawtucket that draws its 300 students from Pawtucket, Central Falls and Providence.  Blackstone’s commitment to connecting learning to community involvement and community improvement produces outstanding students and engaged citizens  Compass, a K-8 statewide charter in Kingston, offers its 168 students a project-based curriculum integrating academic disciplines, emphasizing social responsibility and environmental sustainability.

Congratulations to Blackstone Academy Charter School and The Compass School — we look forward to supporting your continued success and achievement!
