Sussex Academy is a public charter, tuition free school offering an accelerated academic program for the students of Delaware in grades kindergarten through twelve. The elementary program is based on high academic expectations and a hands-on, integrated approach to learning. The secondary academic programs follow an instructional model that uses the successes of past best practices in interdisciplinary curriculum and project-based learning in the middle school grades and the International Baccalaureate program for the high school grades.
Our students achieve high academic performance through critical, independent thinking and reflection and develop social consciousness through service and community partnerships. The school is very proud of its talented and highly qualified staff that has developed and maintains a challenging curriculum in a supportive and caring environment for its students.
Greetings From our Head of School
Welcome to our Sussex Academy,
Our school is a public charter, tuition free school serving grades K to 12. We have a main campus for middle and high school and a separate elementary campus. Both are centrally located in Georgetown, Delaware.
I am excited to meet our new elementary school students at the beginning of their academic journey and to follow their success through graduation. We have recruited excellent educators and I am confident that we will offer the top elementary program in the State. I am also looking forward to reading stories in the kindergarten classrooms!
Our middle school and high school offer an accelerated academic program that is complemented by extra curricular experiences including interscholastic athletics, performing arts and opportunities for participation in clubs and community service. The Sussex Academy Middle School students practice a project based learning approach. Our high school, grades 9-12, offers the International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) that helps foster the development of critical thinking and complex problem solving skills.
If you are seeking an accelerated academic curriculum in a safe environment with a focus on kindness, mindfulness and positivity, I encourage you to schedule a visit to our school. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus.
Eric M. Anderson
Head of School
