Southern Avenue Charter School of Academic Excellence and Creative Arts (SACS) was founded in 2004 and opened in August, 2005. Chartered to open and operate by Memphis City Schools and the Tennessee Department of Education, the school was designed by a diverse group of community stakeholders who have a passion for every student receiving a quality education. Southern Avenue Charter School provides an alternative route to success for Kindergarten – 5th Grade students who are failing to reach their full potential in traditional school settings. The founding stakeholders wanted to provide a safe learning environment for students to receive a high quality education with exposure to creative arts. The creative arts program is known as Kaleidoscope.

  • We believe that every child can learn and be successful in an environment for learning that is safe, non-threatening, and brain compatible.
  • We believe that success in the early grades is critical for future success in school.
  • A child who learns early increases his learning capacity forever.
  • We believe that learning deficits can be prevented through intervention in the early grades; improved curriculum and instruction; individual attention; and support from families.
  • We believe it is our responsibility to find that child, where he is, and provide those experiences he needs to be successful academically, creatively, socially, and culturally.
  • We believe that we teach children, not reading, writing, languages, math, social studies, science, music or physical education.
  • We believe that if children have not learned, the teacher has not taught. It is the responsibility of the teacher to provide children with engaging work that ensures that they learn what they are expected to learn.
