The December 11th CPCS Admissions Open House has been rescheduled for December 18th from 6-7pm due to weather.
Under new leadership and completely redesigned for School Year 2018-19, Community Public Charter School (“Community Middle”) offers Albemarle families a middle years option that aims to foster creativity and intellectual curiosity through art and design, experiential learning, mastery, and student choice. As a lab school, CPCS designs and pilots evidence-based approaches to student-centered learning for possible scale to the five ACPS comprehensive middle schools. Admission to CPCS is open to any Albemarle resident on a lottery basis and students leave our school prepared for any academic high school pathway or program they choose to pursue.
