  • Mission:
  • Capitol Collegiate Academy prepares students in grades kindergarten through eight to compete, achieve, and lead in high school, in college and in life.

    Capitol Collegiate Academy is a free public charter school founded on the firm belief that all students, regardless of race or socioeconomic status, are entitled to a high quality education. We believe that a no-excuses culture is the foundation for success and that with discipline, structure, academic rigor, humility, and unyielding optimism, we will ensure that students have the early foundation necessary to go on and excel in high school, in college, and in their careers.

  • History:
  • Capitol Collegiate is founded, developed, governed, and operated by highly-qualified, committed, and mission-aligned education, business, and community leaders. The Governing Board and staff share a clear and explicit belief that all students, regardless of socioeconomic background, should have access to a high quality education and that these students are able to achieve at the same level as their more affluent peers. We believe that college preparation begins in kindergarten and that students should be educated with this end goal in mind. Prominent petitioners for Building Healthy Communities, a collaborative of community organizations in South Sacramento, have expressed the need for and support of our efforts. Using the expertise of this group as well as other community partners, we have assembled a team of legal, business, school, policy, and community leaders, each bringing a component of his or her expertise that will drive the work and success of the school. The Head of School of Capitol Collegiate is an urban school leader and educator with a successful background in education and business. It is through the collective work of this strong team that Capitol Collegiate provides a rigorous elementary education and create college-bound students in some of South Sacramento’s most at-risk communities. This year, Capitol Collegiate operates with over 90% of students qualifying for Free and Reduced Lunch, over 20% English Language Learners, and no dominant racial group represented. We serve the most high-need population in our community and are proud to state that every single student is at or above grade level in reading and in math. These achievements are the direct result of an incredible teaching staff and parent community, clearly and fervently focused on the success of students.
