Student Enrollment

Excel Academy’s mission is to prepare students to succeed in high school and the post secondary venture of their choice, apply their learning to solve prevalent challenges, and engage productively in their communities.



Excel Academy Charter Schools was founded in Massachusetts in 2003 with the mission to provide a high-quality education to students in East Boston and Chelsea, communities that are predominantly low-income and Latinx and historically have faced significant social and educational barriers. Our success in Massachusetts is proof that the opportunity gap can be closed. 

From one middle school to a network of four schools with 1,400 students and 240 staff members serving grades 5 to 12. We are proud to be expanding our charter network to the Rhode Island region. Rhode Island, being a neighboring state, demonstrates the eagerness to provide students from all backgrounds an equitable opportunity for education. This is why we are committed and privileged to serve the community of Providence, North Providence, and Central Falls. 

Our commitment to excellence has remained: when a student has the support and tools to pursue a productive post-secondary pathway aligned with personal identity and values, it can fundamentally change their life trajectory. We prepare and support our students to become self-advocates so that when they leave our halls, they can pave a path to success that is meaningful to them.
