Academic Snapshot

Founded in 1997, Durham Charter was the first charter, one of the highest performing charter schools in North Carolina. Our students outperform the state in every measure on the EOGs.  In the 2021-2022 School Year we were the #10 highest growth public schools out of 2,500. We are now the 3rd highest performing charter school in Durham. Last year, every single one of teachers exceeded growth with their students, performing in the top 1% of schools. 

Our school grade is currently a C, but we were very close to earning a B. This year we launched our high school program and expect to become a B school in the next two years. By 2030 we will serve over 1,200 students on a 50 acre campus. Please visit our About page to learn more.
