MissionThe mission of Dr. Lena Edwards Academic Charter School is to assure educational excellence and character development for all students in Grades K through 8, cultivating both learning and empathy. The school will provide a stable, rigorous, unbroken continuum of classical academic instruction and formal character education, resulting in the highest levels of student achievement, ethical behavior, and cultural literacy, and delivered within a productive, consistent, and supportive school environment.

The ethical foundation of Dr. Lena Edwards Academic Charter School is built upon the core values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Diligence, and Compassion.

The school's vision is to take students beyond the mastery of the New Jersey Common Core Content Standards by introducing specific academic content to the learning experience. This will be done in an ordered, age-and-grade-appropriate core sequence of subjects, issues, and ideas formed and structured to reflect cultural literacy – what all students educated in America should study and know. To complete and give perspective to this classical learning experience, direct teaching of core character values and behaviors, consistent with the standard of respect, ethics and responsibility, will also be provided, not as an adjunct, but as a full and equal partner to academic instruction for all students enrolled at Dr. Lena Edwards Academic Charter School.
