Principal’s Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to Aspire Capitol Heights Academy​! I am thrilled to lead our beautiful school as a ​tuition-free, public charter school in the vibrant and unique Oak Park community. At Aspire Capital Heights Academy​, we know the impact of educating young children in our society and the positive effect they will have on the international community. ​Here’s what makes our school different:

School Culture

  • A high-expectations academic culture combined with a caring and fun school climate.
  • Emphasis on the development of positive values, habits, character and community
  • “Planned Joy” moments every day in every class.

Proven Curriculum

  • A carefully sequenced curriculum, aligned with all state and common core standards
  • Extensive curriculum-aligned formative and through-course assessments

Exemplary Teachers

  • Teacher training in, and use of, Teach Like a Champion pedagogical techniques within an innovative, highly- effective teach cycle that ends almost every lesson with a check for understanding
  • Top quality educators who benefit by extensive instructional coaching and professional
  • Intensive teacher tutoring when a student exhibits difficulty mastering a standard

It is this commitment to educating the young boys and girls of this city that continues our work.

It is a school whose wide offerings in academics, the arts, and co-curricular activities give students incredible opportunities to discover their unique gifts and talents and to develop the confidence that grows from knowing that they have something of value to contribute to others. And for parents who want their children challenged with high expectations in a warm, supportive environment, Aspire Capital Heights  Academy is the best investment in a child’s future. Our model is designed to empower each student to build strong character, demonstrate critical thinking, possess a core body of knowledge, and be on predictive path for academic success and success in life!

As you walk into our building you will be introduced to our warm and joyful school culture built on the notion that all children can be empowered to achieve and contribute greatly to the world! Our classrooms are named after colleges and universities so that our students learn early on that the future is full of opportunities for those who work hard.

Families are essential partners in this work, and we provide numerous opportunities for families to be actively involved in their children’s education. Beginning with daily parent communication, monthly school & family events, parent information workshops and field trips; ACHA truly values our collaborative relationship with families.

I invite you to explore our website and contact us to learn more about our school community through this website or come to visit! 

Thank you for your interest in Aspire Capital Heights Academy.

Mrs. Rhema Stradford-Dai, Principal, Aspire Capital Heights Academy
