Frequently Asked Questions

We field a lot of questions from parents about ACE Prep Academy and charter schools in general. If you don’t find your answer here, please get in touch with us! We’ll be happy to answer it for you.

What Are Charter Schools?

Charter schools are public schools. They are free, non-religious, non-selective schools. Parents must choose to send their students to charter schools. Charter schools have more freedom to make choices about effective curriculum, teachers, academic goals and promotion requirements. In return, charter schools are held to the highest possible standards.

Do I have to pay tuition?
