I am a student at swallows and they provide many resources for us. The teachers are amazing and take time to make sure everyone in the class understands the content. We are being prepared for college from seventh grade, they give us an environment that is similar to college so when we attend we are ready. Swallows has the Early College Program where highschool students can attend highschool while still earning both college and highschool credits.

My experience was great at Swallows Charter Academy. They offered small class sized with teachers that were student oriented, meaning they were always available to me as a student. They offered great lesson plans and made learning a better experience than a large high school could offer.
Everyone at SCA cares about you as a person and academically. With the gearing towards early college, I feel like I wouldn't have gotten the most out of it by going to a traditional high school. I get to graduate high school with 57 credits and I will be a college sophomore next year hopefully.
