The Brooklyn Charter School is committed to providing a nurturing and supportive community where all students feel secure, recognize their own potential, respect others regardless of race, religion or culture, and are instilled with the desire to learn and achieve. It is our aim to provide a rigorous academic program supported by the Arts & Technology that cultivates the whole child. Through achievement and creativity, and in partnership with our families, students will develop the necessary confidence, intellectual capacity and leadership skills to prepare them for an evolving global society.


At The Brooklyn Charter School, we focus on educating the whole child with a proven approach that combines a model core academic curriculum with strong programs in the visual arts, music and dance.


Tailored to meet the needs of individual students, The Brooklyn Charter School’s curriculum combines a model core academic curriculum that reflects existing Common Core Standards and New York State standards with a strong program in the Arts.
