Somerset Academy Bay will be offering Kindergarten thru 6th grade starting August 2013. A tuition-based PreK4 program will also be available.
Somerset Bay at Pinewood Acres is the newest addition to the Somerset Academy family of high quality, high-performing public charter schools. Utilizing proven teaching practices and the latest classroom technology, each Somerset Academy provides students with an environment conducive to learning. It is our goal to provide an educational environment that furthers the philosophy of respect and high expectations for all, enabling students to become confident, self-directed, and responsible lifelong learners.
Founded in 1997, Somerset Academy Charter School opened in Miramar, Florida to humble beginnings. Appropriately named Somerset Neighborhood, the school was housed in a two-room schoolhouse and served 50 students from Kindergarten through 5th grade. To meet parental demand, the school expanded in the years to follow but was careful to maintain its nurturing, tight-knit learning environment and multi-age/multi-level classroom philosophy that parents love and children thrive in. Somerset Academy now offers high-quality K-12 educational programs throughout Florida, Nevada and Texas that have, and continue to, achieve academic success.
Although all Somerset Academy schools share a vision, each campus has a unique and enriching educational program that is tailored to the community they serve. This formula, along with incredible support from parents, has made Somerset Academy a nationally recognized, award-winning family of high quality public charter schools. In 2009, Somerset Academy became the first network of public charter schools in the nation to earn district accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools for its proven commitment to quality and educational excellence. In 2011, Somerset Academy Davie earned a National Blue Ribbon from the U.S. Department of Education; Somerset South Homestead earned the highest gains of any elementary school in the state (while serving a predominantly minority population); and the graduation rate at Somerset Academy Chapel Trail (in Pembroke Pines) continues to be close to 100% — surpassing both state and national figures.
