NJ Approves New South Jersey Charter School for 2012-2013 School Year

Compass Charter School

January 20, 2012

VINELAND, NJ – For the first time, parents residing in Vineland, Millville, or Pittsgrove have an opportunity to enroll their children in a free, independent, public charter school that focuses on customized, personalized learning. The Compass Academy Charter School, opening in September 2012 at 2384 East Landis Ave., Vineland, provides a small classroom environment, a hands-on curriculum, and a personalized learning plan for each student. The unique feature of the school is its use of the Let Me Learn Process®.

The Let Me Learn Process®, an advanced learning system with a 20 year track record of improving student achievement, has been used across New Jersey in districts such as Lawrenceville, Berlin, Glassboro, Delsea, and Folsom. Now, for the first time, students in K-5 grades will be immersed in a learning environment proven to raise student achievement school wide.

Joel Johnston, Lead Founder of the charter’s founding board explained, “The Compass Academy Charter School is based on the belief that every child can learn. That’s our mission. Parents have the opportunity at no cost to enroll their children in a school that equips them to be self-sufficient learners.”

Enrollment begins February 4, with plans to have 114 K-2 students enrolled by June 2012. Ultimately, the school will expand one grade level per year until it is operating at a K-5 level.
