Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS A CHARTER SCHOOL?

Charter schools are public schools—funded by state, federal and local taxpayer dollars and subject to many of the same accountability and regulatory requirements as district or traditional public schools. What makes charter schools unique is that they operate under the supervision of a board of directors chosen by the school community, rather than a publicly elected school board. In addition, charter schools have the freedom to employ innovative instructional methods and curricula, although the state still requires all charter school students to participate in the state testing program. Charter schools also have greater flexibility in hiring and compensation of personnel, and are exempt from class size and school hour regulations. Unlike district schools, when a charter school is not properly serving its families, it closes.


IS UPROAR LEADERSHIP ACADEMY A MILITARY SCHOOL?

Yes! UpROAR Leadership Academy will improve student learning through a system that is currently provided for students at the 26 private military schools in the United States. This is a system which puts emphasis on becoming a whole person by taking responsibility for ones’ actions. This program gives a cadet the foundation to be successful in future endeavors. The whole purpose of using this system is not to prepare cadets for the military but for life. The seven core components that the academy is built on are academics, vocational, life skills, healthy living and physical fitness, community service, and product citizens.
