A Day in the Life at Belmont Academy Charter School

Mornings at Belmont Academy Charter School


Students begin their day with a healthy breakfast which is shown to increase concentration and energy so students can learn their best!


Each day, every class has a morning meeting where we learn about each other and have fun preparing for the day ahead. This also helps us to build strong relationships between friends and between each teacher and student.

Afternoon Learning


Children are engaged in learning that is developmentally appropriate and individualized.

Social Emotional Learning


We believe that recess plays a super important role in student learning. Physical activity optimizes learning and creates creative, social and emotional growth for our students.


We promote play as we believe it is crucial in a child’s social and emotional development.

Parents as Partners


At Belmont Academy Charter School, we welcome every opportunity to chat with our parents when we greet them individually at drop off and pick up- or through messages on our internal application “Parent Square”.


We host monthly engagement activities to keep parents informed of what’s happening in their child’s academic life, to provide resources and skills to keep students growing.



Many of the students stay after school for extended learning and fun.


Programs include art, music, science, and sports.
